L3003. Looking west at a girder span of the Great Central viaduct that carried the Last Main Line across the London & North Western Railway at Rugby. Just visible through the haze is the unmistakable shape of the L.N.W.R. station. To the right of the double-heading locomotives at the centre of the picture is the company's engine shed. Part of a turntable can be seen on the far left of the photograph.
