'tractor' between Rose Grove and Padiham Power Station, England, 1967

'Tractor' was the nickname for the 37 Class English Electric-built Co-Co's as apparently they sounded like the ones on farms.  This branch, part of the former North Lancashire Loop, lasted until 1993.  Info

Some of the survivors are still in service today almost 60 years old, in your photo it looks like a banker steam loco is assisting or another train has passed the other way, smoke near the bridge.
