Parcels in the Post

Photographer C C Thornburn kindly gave me permission to reproduce this fine photograph taken at the Sutton Park GPO Parcels depot on the 3rd July 1985, and showing loco 31112 presumably about to depart with the 3G20 Sutton Park - Curzon St afternoon parcels post service.

The locomotive was allocated to Bescot for the last 10 years of it's life, being withdrawn in May 1997.

Please note that the photo copyright remains with the owner and this scan is not to be copied or reproduced without permission (contact the blog address below for details).

An ace shot that is, pure nostalgia. 31112 was a Bescot celebrity in 1997 repainted in Dutch with Transrail branding, but that didnt stop its early demise.
