Heaton Mersey Final Duties

56cm x 81cm, oil on canvas.

A Stanier 8F 2-8-0 is oiled up for the last time by its driver, as this was to be its last run before Heaton Mersey depot at Stockport closed in May 1968. 48191 regardless of its condition, was withdrawn from service and sent to the scrapyard within a few weeks of this scene.
