BR/LNER Class B1 No. 61318 at Leicester London Road Station 1950

BR/LNER Class B1 No. 61318 at Leicester London Road Station 1950

BR/LNER Class B1 No. 61318 about to depart Leicester London Road Station on a Leicester to Colchester passenger service in November 1950.

Five trainspotters from a school in Nottingham, they had been somewhere on a school trip, are on the platform being supervised by an adult, one of their teachers, who is wearing a Mackintosh.

The boys are wearing typical 1950s apparel; all seem to be their wearing school uniforms with a mixture of blazer/gaberdine mackintoshes, short trousers, long knee socks and peaked school caps. Two boys have school satchels, so presumably the photo was taken late afternoon after school had finished.
