    All Our Yesterdays – 60 Years Ago –January 1958

    Sixty years ago Standard class steam locomotives were still in production, diesel shunter production was in full swing and the first of the Pilot Scheme mainline diesels were just starting to be delivered.

    In the month seventy seven steam locomotives were withdrawn, thirty four being over fifty years old with North Eastern Railway J77 Class 0-6-0T 68397 being the oldest, having entering traffic in May 1875 and condemned eighty two years later. The majority of these withdrawals were the older secondary main line and branch line passenger engines, steam shunting engines and old freight engines being displaced by the continued delivery of the Standards, Diesel Multiple Units and diesel shunting engines. As the older engines were withdrawn the number of post grouping engines condemned was starting to increase with twenty three locomotives condemned. built post the 1923 grouping.

    In the month sixty six steam locomotives were withdrawn, twenty four being over fifty years old with Midland Railway Johnson 2F 0-6-0 58196 being the oldest, having entering traffic in March 1880 and condemned seventy eight years later. The majority of these withdrawals were the older secondary main line and branch line passenger engines, steam shunting engines and older freight engines being displaced by the continued delivery of the last of the 9F standards, the pilot scheme main line diesels, diesel multiple units and diesel shunting engines. Twenty one engines condemned were built post the 1923 grouping with the youngest engine condemned being Great Western Railway 51xx 2-6-2T 4139 at only eighteen years old.

    A number I have photographed later in life and can be found in this collection. As always feedback and comments welcome
