New NCB loco

BW Austerity

August 1957: Local railway enthusiast Archebald Robotham sneaks his new Kodak Brownie Starlet into his snap bag and while partaking of lunch, take a photo of newly built a NCB Hunslet loco parked up in a siding at Ruston Quays. He wonders if one day someone will invent a colour film suitable for amateur use as he'd like to have captured the lovely apple green colour. The clean engine stands out amongst the dirt and grime of the dockyard he works in a a flange wrangler.

This is a DJ Models loco lent to us for photos during Warley exhibition. It is a pretty colour.
