Lumpsey 1930

This is a locomotive J39 -0-6-0 no. 1448; it was the first of a class and almost new when the incident took place, it was derailed at the trap points at Lumpsey mine near Brotton.

Raymond Brown provided additional information: “This J39 Loco was not a write off, it went on to be renumbered 64700 under BR ownership and remained in traffic until 1961 (based at Sunderland Shed). It was cut up at the British Railway’s Cowlairs works in August 1961. Additional information courtesy of Ray Brown.
