75030 1967-12-03 Scout Green

BR Riddles 'Standard 4' class 4-6-0 No. 75030. Built at Swindon in June 1953 and withdrawn in December 1967.

This stunning photograph is one of my personal favourites. This breathtaking image was taken by an exceptional railway photographer, the late Eric Bentley. For me, it captures everything that was moody and magnificent about the western Pennines. This was almost certainly the last working of 75030, with the Tebay breakdown train on Saturday 30th December 1967.
