4089 1952 Laira

4089 1952 Laira

One of Peter Kerslakes earliest efforts, possibly one of his best whilst still at school, captured on a Box Brownie roll film camera used from 1952 or thereabouts.Laira's 4089 is being prepared for duty at its home shed but very unusually is facing the "wrong way" and is almost certainly, therefore, once it's left shed via the customary Laira Triangle going to work down into Cornwall to Penzance.Old Oak's 70023, "Venus ", not long in service, receives some attention from a couple of enginemen on the right. Given they still have very clean pairs of boots it might be their engine for their next duty.
