I recently asked readers if they could identify the station ‘somewhere in the south’ that is featured in the picture on the facing page.
Turns out it is Waterloo station pictured about 1905 before it was overhauled after the First World War.
Tony Holley, of Billy Lawn Avenue, Havant, was able to identify the locomotive on the right, No 120.
It belonged to class T9 and he says: ‘It was a general use locomotive, but when needed was used to haul the royal trains.
‘It was painted green and kept in tip-top condition.
‘It is currently part of The National Collection at York Railway Museum.’
Tony adds: ‘It spent some time on loan to The Watercress Line where it was restored to running condition and it is now on loan to The Swanage Railway in Dorset hauling passenger trains.’
