The first

Britannia 70040 CLIVE OF INDIA which was my first Britannia at Liverpool Street in 1960 after a dash up the platform as she was leaving light for Stratford!
Three years later it was deja vu as I chased a Britannia up Platform 11 at Glasgow Central to find it was 70040 now a Carlisle Kingmoor loco......
Into traffic in March 1953 she was withdrawn in April 1967 and succumbed to Jim McWilliam's torch at Shettleston later that year.
