B/W print; Three-quarter front nearside view of preserved Metropolitan 1921-electric locomotive no 12 'Sarah Siddons' by Peter Wilson, Sep 1982
Three-quarter front nearside view of preserved Metropolitan 1921-electric locomotive no 12 'Sarah Siddons' at the head of a train of five British Rail Mark 2 coaches on a rail tour to Wembley Park. The train has obviously come to a halt, and various people can be seen both on the locomotive and standing at the side of the track; the gentlemen carrying the holdall and wearing the peaked cap, midground centre, may be a member of the train crew. A car of A60/A62-stock, with gangway connecting door open, and bearing a 'Neasden' destination blind, stands on an adjacent track.
