A cousin of David Beardmore sent in these digitised slides David was born in 1943 in Sutton Coldfield and died in 2010 in Sutton Coldfield. For many years he lived in Station Road, Sutton Coldfield and the slides were found in this house . He also was a volunteer at Hampton Loade Station with Severn Valley Railway.
These photos were taken at a Tyseley Locomotive Works Open Day, in the 1970s. The presence of 7027 suggests the date is after 1972, when the loco was purchased by the then "Birmingham Railway Museum". Photos of the replica "Locomotion" may help identify the actual year, since this was built in 1974. Please let us now if you know the exact year.
