sorry but as the others, I put on the site, were in the 1960's maybe this was taken around the same time?

That may be a 4-6-0 'Jubliee' class on the ex LNWR line going over Wallgate bridge. Today, the same view is obliterated by the cursed trees and bushes planted in the final days of steam. Just to the left of the picture and out of view, is the famous 'down 't' nick'. Many happy days were spent there between 1964 and 1967. Lovely photograph.
