Oil train

British Railways class 9F 2-10-0 heavy freight locomotive passing Handsworth (Birmingham) on an oil train. These locos were the most successful BR design and would even wheel along a passenger train at over 60mph. Other pictures which I took in this locality, using my lineside pass, can be found on my flickr account (ricsrailpics). 26 September 1964

Richard is it possible to tell the number from the original photo please. co-ed

I always used to find it amazing steam locos working oil trains but of course this was the norm. As there are no barrier wagons between the loco and the tanks I would assume this is low flashpoint stuff.

Thanks Richard.
There are reports of one being clocked at 90mph between Grantham and King's Cross. The driver apparently hauled over the coals afterwards and told "you're only supposed to keep time not break the xxxxxx sound barrier"!!!
