On Sged, haworth

 

BR Standard Tank Locomotive 80002 stands on shed at Haworth on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway. The blue smokebox number plate and the 66A Glasgow Polmadie shed code marks this engine out as a Scottish Region resident during it's British Railways existence.

These were true maids of all work Les: I'd forgotten about the Scottish blue - but of course I never saw one in that condition in BR days
Les Auld: Neither did I Chris, but they are fine engines, thanks for the comment.
I've always liked these big tank engines. They had a lot of power and I suppose this one has been longer preserved than it worked!
Les Auld: It probably has Bill, and there are a few in preservation providing a prime source of motive power. Thanks for the comment,
