Report Date Title Report Source
31/08/1950 General Two N.E. Region engines recently named are 60127 Wilson Worsdell and 60153 Flamboyant of Heaton and York respectively. Owing to the scarcity of pull-and-push engines at King's Cross, the Alexandra Palace branch has been worked occasionally by 'N.2' tanks, Which run round the train. One of these, numbered 69540 on the bunker, had the former number 9540 visible on the tanks. A fitted 'N.7' from Neasden has also been assisting, as only one of the 'F.2' 2-4-2T (E.7111) now remains and is in poor shape. This engine, originally M.S. & L. No. 783, built by Beyer Peacock in 1896 (No. 3701), class '9G,' is the sole survivor of the G.C. 2-4-2T which once totalled 37 engines. SLS/195010
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
