Two photographs of 70013 OLIVER CROMWELL by the coaling stage and on the turntable of Leicester Locomotive Depot (London Midland depot) in April 1963, the shed, coaling stage and roundhouse are long since gone! My great thanks to Paul Gray for allowing me to use these historic black and white photographs on my 'homage page' to 70013 OLIVER CROMWELL.

 

What 70013 might have looked like at the end of steam and British Railways!

Many great express passenger locomotives were in the most appalling state! (as is this old photo from 1967!)
