40015 - one of Fowler's 2-6-2T locos (they weren't quite as good as his 2-6-
4Ts, I believe). In store at Bolton shed.
41224 is one of Ivatt's effective little 2-6-2Ts, built in the latter days of the LMS.
Look closely - no, not a Jinty. 41900 is one of the 0-4-4Ts built in the early days
of Stanier, based on the Midland design. Wellington, Shropshire, 13 August
The LMS had a lot of 2-6-4Ts. 42210 is one of Fairburn's 2-cylinder examples.
Kingmoor, 15 May 1964
There was a flavour of the latter days of the L&Y in the Hughes/Fowler "Crabs".
42925 is on Stoke shed; sister 42924 stands behind.
1 October 1961
The first of the "Baby Scots" - 45500 "Patriot" give its name to the class.
One that got away... I guess that, if there was a competition to choose a
favourite (departed) Jubilee, it would be 45562 "Alberta", seen at Carlisle
...and one that is still with us - 46115 has been back in action recently after a
long break (St Enoch station, however, closed more than 40 years ago)
LMS part 1 - LMS-built
A "Lizzie" - 46208 "Princess Helena Victoria" at Carlisle. A sign of the times
stands in the bay platform
46236 "City of Bradford" - a broadside view at Kingmoor shed makes plain the
size of the "Coronation" pacifics
One of Ivatt's class 2 2-6-0s - a "Mickey Mouse", no less. 46504 is on Oswestry
shed, despite bearing a Laira (83D) shedplate.
2 April 1963
The LMS "Jintys" were of course closely based on the Midland design. 47614
pedals along purposefully near Upperby shed, 7 March 1963
Ivatt's class 4 2-6-0, fondly remembered as the "Flying Pigs" - 43103 arrives at
Carlisle with 12.40 from Langholm, 24 August 1963
Black 5 45135 is admired by a couple of young spotters at Carlisle
Stanier's 8F: 48676 bears a number plate with decidedly pre-nationalisation
numerals (and, curiously, a 9F shedplate...) (No, I know, it's perfectly sensible.
It just amused me)
170 of these 7F 0-8-0s were built by Fowler from 1929; with a tendency to run
hot, they were plainly eclipsed by Stanier's 8Fs. Only 19 remained in service 30
years on, including 49637 at Wigan (27D)
