This emerged from a box of photographs that came to light a couple of weeks ago.
I do not know the photographer or any details of this view apart from "3.52" written on the back - which I presume to mean it was taken in March 1952. From the lamps it appears to be a through freight - possibly an Olney - Stratford - and beyond.
The motive power is the usual 4F (identity unknown) - and yes, I know that the quality is pretty grim.
However I don't know of any other shots at this location - and as you all are aware photos on this section of line are pretty rare. The first vehicle in the train looks interesting as well.
Your comments and thoughts will oblige.
