Report Date Title Report Source
17/07/1949 Derby Friargate MPD On 17/7 the following were noted at the ex G.N.R*. shed here, during the evening:-'D.2' Nos. 62172, 2173/77; 'D.3' No. 2123; 'J.5' Nos. 65484/85, 5497; 'J.6' No.4215; 'J.69' No. 8527. On this date, owing to extensive P.W. repairs on the ex L.M.S. line between Repton and Pear Tree Junction, involving a long section of single line working, certain ex L.M.S. trains from Burton to Derby were diverted via Dove Junction and Egginton over the ex G.N. line to Derby (with ex L.N.E.R. pilotmen from Egginton), passengers being conveyed from Derby (Friargate) to the ex L.M.S. station by omnibus. *The ex G.N. shed at Derby, the entrance to which is in Slack Lane (off Uttoxeter Old Road), is well worth a visit by members visiting the ex L.M.S. Works and Shed at Derby. SLS/194909
31/12/1950 Withdrawals Among the withdrawals will be noticed 43319 (Johnson goods, built in 1892 as M.R. 2042, class 2F, reboilered as 3F in 1905); 4162 (built in 1900 as M. & G.N. 87) one of the few small-boilered Ivatt goods and 7111 (built in 1896 as M.S. & L. 783), the last of its class to remain in service, recently on the push-pull service between Finsbury Park and Alexandra Palace. Also, the withdrawal of 2132, leaves only one Ivatt 4-4-0 class D.3 in stock (No. 62000, at Grantham) with side-window cab, used for working the official saloon. There is also one surviving D.2 (No. 62172 at Colwick). SLS/195102
