45390, Hest Bank, August 1967. The Black 5 heads south while the signalman talks to a chap at ground level. Visible in the box are the lever frame and the wheel for operating the level crossing gates. NB that the boarded crossing seen in my 25 March photo has been removed following the end of token working on the Bare Lane spur. Hest Bank troughs can be seen in the distance. 45390 lasted to the end of steam in August 1968.
