30/10/1948 Crewe Works The remaining nine 2-6-2T's of Order E471 are now in traffic. They were completed on the following dates:-Nos. 41221 (9/9), 41222 (13/9), 41223 (16/9), 41224 (21/9), 41225 (24/9), 41226 (28/9), 41227 (30/9), 41228 (5/10), and 41229 (8/10). The construction of a further batch of '2F' 2-6-0's is now well under way and the first five engines were completed as follows:-Nos. 46420 (14/10), 46421 (26/10), 46422 (22/10), 46423 (29/10), and 46424 (2/11). Three more 'Patriot' Class 4-6-0's have been rebuilt with tapered boilers-No. 45523 was completed on 20/9, No. 45545 on 8/10 and No 45536 on 26/10; No. 45545 has been named Planet. Another 'Royal Scot,' No. 6167, is at present in for rebuilding and - will probably be in traffic by the middle of December.
During the past two months Nos. 44829/30 an 48064 have had their oil-burning apparatus removed, which seems to indicate that the other locomotives so fitted will be similarly dealt with as they pass through the shops.
The ranks of ex L.N.W.R. engines continue to be steadily thinned and many more have gone to the scrap heap recently, they were cut up as follows:-W.E. 7/8 Nos. 6653/89, 7959, 28535; W.E. 14/8 Nos. 6870, 9270; W.E. 21/8 Nos. 28097, 28367, 28586; W.E. 28/8 Nos. 7948, 9309, 28088; W.E. 4/9 Nos. 7787, 8913, 28234; W.E. 11/9 Nos. 7756, 9136; WE. 18/9 Nos. 6691, 7840; W.E. 25/9 Nos. 7816, 27556, 28104; W.E. 2/10 No. 7721; W.E. 9/10 Nos. 7703, 28404; W.E. 16/10 Nos. 9152, 9165, 27681; W.E. 23/10 Nos. 7733, 28262, 28313, 28608; W.E. 30/10 No. 7954.
During October considerable interest was aroused here by the arrival of five ex G.W.R. 0-6-0 pannier tanks Nos. 2021/67, 2115/50/85. These engines are at present undergoing repair and it is understood that more are to follow.
