Description

Electric locomotive with freight train, Cumbria, c 1960s. A clas 81 electric locomotive heads a freight train between Shap and Penrith in Cumbria on the West Coast main line. The photographer, Eric Treacy (1907-1978), never really took to colour film or modern traction, preferring to photograph steam locomotives in black and white, but the cloud formation and attractive landscape setting make this an ideal colour subject.
