Description:'Royal Scot' 4-6-0 locomotive number 6166, The London Rifle Brigade, pulls out of Whitmore after taking on an unexpected royal visitor in summer 1932.

A note on the back of the photograph tells us that Princess Mary had made a visit to Trentham Gardens, and that the train made an unscheduled stop to assist her in her onward journey.

These handsome red locomotives were a regular sight in Staffordshire and the Potteries between 1927 and the early 1960s.
