Scene in the sidings to the south of Lockerbie station on 13 June 1959 where ex-Great North of Scotland Railway 4-4-0 No 49 Gordon Highlander, has just run round its train. The train in question is the SLS Golden Jubilee Special from Glasgow Buchanan Street, which the locomotive will next take (observation car first) on to Dumfries via the Lochmaben line. The special will later return north from Dumfries via the G&SW route to St Enoch. Note the spire of St Cuthbert's Church in the background, still a landmark to this day, although the surroundings have changed beyond recognition see image 35141.
