Nice Photos

Nice moustache.

Not A Problem… :crazy_face:

I had to look the history up. The loco is (for me…) too old or obscure for me to know anything about it…!

I’m in a similar position to you, I was 8 months old when the loco was withdrawn! but have an interest in the L&Y, The Midland and the North Eastern Railway, especially the Midland, who built the line where I grew up at Normanton, West Yorks, now sadly reduced to just a double track secondary line, from being a main line station with extensive goods yards and motive power depot.

I do have this shed plate, from the old depot, although what it was attached to in the past, haven’t a clue.

I will have to pop down and visit the Great Central, please keep posting the photo’s

Should you visit the GCR, I can sometimes be found working as Platform Staff at Loughborough Central.

Will do, re photos. We are … expecting… some interesting, famous loco’s… soon… :astonished:

Now that sounds interesting !
it would be good to meet up, your duties permitting of course, probably be after Easter :+1:

The 2 locos that I am thinking of, are both Pacifics. One is already at the GCR, I believe and is expected to emerge from its overhaul, at some point soon. The other is… nearby.

Cheers Ian, that’s a blow, that was one of the loco’s I wanted to see in steam, I have no chance of getting down before then, but Thank you for alerting me, I will have to make arrangements to visit the line.

I will get down to the line Ian, that’s a promise, there’s quite a lot on the line that I want to see, and hopefully we can arrange a meet-up while down on the line.
