Description

Derelict railway box van at a scrapyard, by Selwyn Pearce-Higgins. There were a lot of scrap rolling stock and locomotives in the 1960s and 1970s. Steam locomotives were withdrawn from British Railways in 1968. Some locomotives were preserved, but most were scrapped and brought to scrap yards. Some yards were so overstretched that it took years to scrap all the locomotives. This ex-North Eastern Railway van survived due to limited ("internal") use by the National Coal Board. 'The letters 'NCB' are just visible on the left hand side.
