Class 24 Diesel at Kings Cliffe (1965)

Longsight, Manchester based Class 24 #D5146 approaching Kings Cliffe station with a westbound passenger train in June 1965.

The same loco was lucky to survive this long having been at the head of a freight train derailment in 1963 at Weedon in Northants that saw a passenger train plough into the derailed wagons.

D5146 was eventually withdrawn along with most of the class in early 1976.
