Looking north-west towards the shed in late 1967 it is evident that the run-down of steam is in full swing as diesels are now out numbering the steam engines. Peaks and Brush type 4's await their next turn of duty whilst the steam locomotive to the right had just arrived following a passenger working, its headcode displayed on the tender.
