Notes: The photo above is dated June 1938, but the snow and leafless trees are telltale clues that date is incorrect. Also, No. 20 received the short pilot in mid-1939. The train could be a convention special, or the special run that took all the boys off to war. Combine 05 is behind No. 20, followed by 2 baggage cars and 5 coaches.
