“Peter Smith of Branksome sends a shovelful of ovoids on to the blinding fire of Standard 5 No. 73019 near Masbury during a northbound run on the Pines Express.” These are the photographer’s words in his 1975 book published by Bradford Barton.
Peter and his usual driver, Donald Beale were well-known on the S&D for their locomotive handling; see also WSHSD_2022_14_205 and WSHSD_2022_14_206.
