An unidentified 'Brush' Type 2 Diesel locomotive approaches
Bromford Bridge with a down coal train in 1963. Viewed from the horse dock this
photograph shows how the River Tame was realigned when they built the railway
in 1842. British Railways required a smaller locomotive and the Type 2 fitted
the bill so 283 locomotives were built by Brush Traction from 1957 to 1962.
Later classified as Class 30 under TOPS, they were re-engined and categorised
as Class 31 diesel locomotives.
