German-built SECR L Class No. 31776 departs Bournemouth Central with an Up service under the distinctive signal gantry. The locomotive is shown as allocated to Nine Elms from mid-1959 until withdrawn in February 1961, so this indicates the likely date as being within that range. No locos of this class were preserved.
