Freight at Hooton On Saturday, the 5th of May 1962, after arrival at Hooton of the final freight from West Kirby, the loco, 42229, and the brake van from that train were coupled around a bogie freight wagon.

This short freight train is photographed standing in platform 4 at Hooton station, possibly working back to Chester as the loco was allocated to the Chester (Midland) shed.
