Age before beauty??. Sunderland District 27?, PUP54?, waits at the level crossing on Philadelphia Lane for an NCB load of empty coal wagons. The unidentified PD2/12 was built in 1955 (3 years later than the loco) and had Metro-Cammel Orion H30/26R bodywork.
The buildings (Chapel Row) behind the bus are still there but the level crossing and railway is just a grassy area and the pithead behind the loco has all gone as well.
