The south-western end of Durham station in 1957, looking south-west over the viaduct. In the foreground a 3-way point is seen. The left –hand line gave access to the original engine shed but by the 1950s ended slightly slewed and had a loading ramp over the buffer stop for loading cars into vans.  The middle line was the parcels dock, and the right one was the Bishop Auckland passenger departure bay.  No.67258 is banking a southbound excursion train. The loco is close to the end of its life; Worsdell-designed G5 0-4-4T was built at the NER Darlington works in June 1900. In LNER days it carried the number 1793, and latterly 7258; the ‘6’ prefix was added after Nationalisation in 1948. The loco was withdrawn from 54A Sunderland South Dock shed on 31 October 1957 and was cut up at Darlington, its birthplace, in November. The water tank and crane will be noted,
