Scottish West Country

Post by Deepol » Sun Sep 04, 2011 7:40 pm

An interesting old photo of West Country Pacific 34004 YEOVIL at Perth during the 1948 Locomotive Exchanges when she worked over the Highland Line. She is paired with an LMS tender because of reduced water capacity on her own.
She was built at Brighton and entered traffic in June 1945 as 21C104. One of those rebuilt, she emerged in that form in February 1958 and was withdrawn in July 1967.
34067 TANGMERE was supposed to replicate this earlier this year but sadly didn't make it.
