70019 1956 Lipson Junction

70019 1956 Lipson Junction

Peter Kerslake the photographer recalls "Laira allocated 70019 Lightning has steam to spare as it runs down over Trefusis Bridge at Lipson on a Paddington bound express which it has just taken on at Plymouth North Road station.
It's a down gradient past Laira shed which lies ahead, then a run along the Plym estuary before the hard climb to the summit of Hemerdon bank with its 1 in 42 grade from Plympton station. If my memory serves me correctly I recall this as being a Sunday photograph, hence the extremely lighly loaded three coach working to Paddington !
