Caption - Pakistan Railways SPS class inside-cylinder 4-4-0 no.3078 is prepared to work a train at Wazirabad Junction loco depot in March 1979. This loco was delivered to service in 1904 from Beyer Peacock in Manchester. The class survived until the early 1990s. The Northern Railway (India) also operated this class but they finished service much earlier. In Pakistan, the class were concentrated on the lines in the Indus Valley where gradients were easy. Malakwal, Faisalabad and Wazirabad were the last depots servicing these handsome engines.
