Album ‘Grantham Photos 34F’; page 7

Class L1 No.67757 (34F) with a WD and an O2 on the east Coronation siding on Wednesday 25th April 1962.
The L1s were another of Thompson's rip roaring successes - they thrashed themselves to bits, being built to a very low spec. As the man said, 'From the rear they looked like a self-propelled Dub Dee tender.' Being from the land of Fowler and Stanier I loved 'em!
