BR Standard Class 2 2-6-0s, commonly know as "Mickey Mouse" engines, were built at Darlington and were direct descendants of the Ivatt 46400 moguls built by the LMS from 1946. 78038 hauled the middle leg (Shepperton - Epsom Downs - Caterham via a very convoluted route) of the LCGB's "Surrey Wanderer" tour on 5 July 1964, the swansong for the M7 class. Nº78038 had been suitably spruced up for this rare visit to Southern Metals and is seen approaching Waddon Marsh Halt from the Wimbledon direction. The line to the left went to Croydon 'B' generating station.

BR Standard Class 3 MT, 77014

77014 BR Standard Class 3 2-6-0 77014, one of a class of only 20 that was normally only seen on the North Eastern and Scottish Regions, was transferred to the Southern Region during the final months of steam. It is seen here at Datchet, on the Windsor Riverside branch, on the LCGB South Western Suburban Railtour on 5 February 1967.
