Hardly arty but it likely does have historical value for those with a keen interest in the 1970s North-East, majoring on the railway scene!

English Electric class 37 no. 37161, hauling a rake of flats, passes Middlesbrough station on the up freight line with a 'proceed under caution' signal. For me it's been interesting to see that most of the shots I took in the area on this day featured almost exclusively bull-head rail - flat-bottomed rail had seemingly made few inroads into this part of the world in 1976.

The house with the elegant facade on the right lies on Exchange Place, and the road continues under the railway. I say house but, judging by the numerous window fans, it's more likely to be in use as a business.

Immediately above the loco cab is a building with what looks to be J Parkin Ltd (?) painted on the gable-end just below the roofline. I've tried checking it out but without success at this point. The building lies on Bridge Street West and, further along, there's a four storey commercial building trading as 'Checkpoint' - instinct tells me it was probably a supermarket.

This is another frame from the 'strip of six', and the final two may get uploaded if I can make reasonable images from them (this one took several frustrating attempts).
