Waddon Marsh in 1971

On a gloomy January morning, 2-EPB 5723 leaves with the 11.15 to West Croydon. On the right unit 2016 pauses at the front of the 2-BIL Farewell railtour organised by the Southern Electric Group. Once heavily industrial, with the Croydon gas works and power station, this area is now dominated by a retail park. The gas holder survives as a slightly incongruous reminder of the area's history.
