     Locomotive has the full 'British Railways' painted on its tender. As there was only one company from 1948 this could be seen as rather unnecessary, but old habits die hard.

    Nothing to do with "old habits". It was not decided for some time as to what badge locomotives would carry and so "British Railways" was used as an interim. If you really want "old habits" the Southern Railway which became the Southern Region was told to add 30 thousand on to their excising numbers and so they did. 21C1 "Channel Packet", became 30,21C1. Please notice the use of the comma!

     Last two coaches seem to be in the new (1948) red and cream livery.

    The stubs of the piers for Sir Thomas Bouch's ill-fated first Tay Bridge are very apparent in this shot

    Would appear to be a southbound express from Aberdeen or Dundee to Edinburgh and points beyond: the coaches are carrying destination headboards

    The locomotive appears to be A2 Pacific 529 designed by Peppercorn, named 'Pearl Diver'. It was built at Doncaster; completed on 21 February 1948 and was later based at Edinburgh's Haymarket depot. Sometime later the locomotive was rebuilt with a double chimney. It was withdrawn in 1962. Curious that the tender is in British Railway livery but the engine carries its LNER number. This confirms the date - the transition to British Railways
