Great Central Railway Loughborough Leicestershire 5th January 2003

Great Central Railway Loughborough Leicestershire 5th January 2003
On another cold January morning, 13 years ago, Riddles WD Austerity 2-10-0 90775 waits on road 1 prior to coming off shed to work trains to Leicester. I was still a cleaner back then I but did have a go on this loco while it was with us.

Excellent photo of this well travelled loco, Pete.
I think the red of buffer beams adds so much to colour photos of locos.

Thanks Neil. Agreed, especially when the engine is looking a bit work-weary like this one was.

Nice reminder of a class I'd forgotten about.

Cheers Roy. There were quite a few built but only a handful worked on BR after the war. This one came from Greece.
