Caption - British Railways Jubilee class 4-6-0 45660 "Rooke" is seen at Shrewsbury in 1964. It has just left its home depot where it has been based for a few years and will soon take over a northbound express, which had arrived earlier. This loco was one of 191 'Jubilees' built between 1934 and 1936 by the LMS. Shrewsbury was one of my favourite places to watch steam at this time with a constant procession of trains, many of which changed locos in the station. The group of train spotters on the left could have easily included me! What wonderful memories.
