Southern Railway/British Railways Maunsell Class U 2-6-0 No. 31638 at Woodham Brothers scrapyard, Barry, Wales on 18th August 1966. Built at Ashford Works in May 1931, it was withdrawn from Guildford shed in January 1964. It is preserved at the Bluebell Railway and owned by the Maunsell Locomotive Society

The SR U class were 2-6-0 (mogul) steam locomotives designed by Richard Maunsell for passenger duties on the Southern Railway. The class represented the penultimate stage in the development of the Southern Railway's mogul family, which improved upon the basic principles established by GWR Chief Mechanical Engineer George Jackson Churchward for Great Western Railway locomotives

A schoolboy trainspotter, wearing his school uniform of peaked school cap, shirt, tie, pullover, blazer, short trousers and knee socks, poses for a photo in the locos cab. By 1966, school caps and shorts were no longer worn by the vast majority of boys, only public and grammar schools hanging on to them.
