60048 a Grantham loco

Roy Vinter (with hat) and fellow fireman Roger Simmons alongside A3 locomotive No.60048 Doncaster. The locomotive was standing 'main line pilot, south facing', in a short spur off 'the angle' (locomotive turning triangle), near the back of the water softener. There would be a north facing pilot in a loop off the angle a bit further along, nearer the drivers' mess room.
The photograph was taken in mid-1963 by Fred Harris, also a fireman.
Photograph lent by Roy Vinter.
