The First of Many

Loco 43924 at Oxenhope.

LMS Fowler 0-6-0 Class 4F built in 1920, withdrawn in June 1965 and sold to Woodham Bros. of Barry in South Wales. It was the first of over 200 steam engines to be saved from Woodham’s.

Another nice one Rye, nice that it was saved too.

To me the locomotive and tender look a little mismatched in that the tender looks much more modern that the loco  which looks rather older than 1920 (not your fault I know, someone should have a word with Stanier's predecessor). I think it's the inside cylinders on a tender locomotive that make it look old.

BTW: Talking of Woodham Bros., one of the suggestions for the name of the reconstructed Saint was "Saint Dai" -- after Dai Woodham and the fact that "Saint David" was the last Saint to be scrapped.

Thanks James, just been checking this was a Midland Railway built 4F, maybe it acquired a different tender under LMS in the 1930's, photographs from the 50's and 60's show it with that tender.

Another nice conversion Rye (might be worth taking down that water tower a tad).   I like the BG as well.  Where was this one taken.
