A snippet for enthusiasts of the "Ashburton Grove Pullman"

On reading through Railway Obervers for 1955, I came across this rather amazing report.

"On Monday 24th July [1955] S.R. C2X 0-6-0 32554 (73B) worked the Ashburton Grove refuse train in both directions, having been commandeered by Hornsey"

Now, if a photo of this comes up on Ebay.....

...in some signal boxes, also referred to unceremoniously as 'the Dustbins'.

I believe there is a photograph of a ex-LB&SCR loco shown on Hatfield shed somewhere on this forum, the photograph shows the loco with Hatfield no.3 (box) in the background.

Since Bulleid Q1s were recorded on freight transfer from SR to Ferme Park, I have an example of both this class and the very pretty Wainwright C on the layout, and with this information am now prepared to put either on the 'Dustbins' too.
