I know its strictly classed as a pannier, but I would class 1501 much better.
Even Swindon eventually saw the benefit of putting the valve gear where it is get-at-able.

Now on the 'official' WSR website as well........
Efforts by West Somerset Railway CME Andrew Forster have paid off and a “guest engine” has been obtained for the Winter Steam Festival on December 29th and 30th. Appropriately enough for an event at the end of the 175th Anniversary Year of the Great Western Railway the locomotive concerned is a 57xx Class Pannier Tank, number 5764 hired from the Severn Valley Railway.

The 57xx was an enormously successful class of engine with over 800 being built. 5764 was constructed at Swindon in 1929 and was withdrawn by British Railways in 1960. However it was then sold to London Transport for use on engineering trains and as number L95 continued to see service until 1971 and its purchase for preservation.

Younger enthusiasts will also of course know that “Duck” in the “Thomas” stories is a Pannier Tank.


So there!

Dave

Totally agree, it will be much better! Very Happy Laughing

According to the loco update on the SVR official website 5764 will be undergoing a cosmetic repaint in January-March 2011. And it will then presumably be swapping with 7714 which it says 'boiler replacement due at Bridgnorth'.

Which begs the question as to whether the boiler shop have now received the parts for the spare boiler overhaul that had been subcontracted, I think to TYS?

Railway Magazine reports SVR are discussing with the National Railway Museum for her to go to York for display. An NRM loco is expected to go to The Engine House in exchange

Sounds good to me - an interesting engine of some sort from the NRM and 5764 remains under cover. The Engine House is educational as well as storage, so variety can only be a good thing. In a couple of years when 7714 has left the EH perhaps 5764 can return to take its place. Will also be nice for the NRM to have a loco in 'used' condition.

TFl have announced ambitious plans for 2013 and the 150 anniversary of the London Underground

Met 1 and 7715 are in the frame (plus the Ashbury set from the Bluebell )

7752 has now returned to traffic in LT Livery .

One wonders if 5786 will also return with a view to it attending to

The opportunity then presents itself for a real gathering of the LT panniers

5764 , 7760 and 5775 are the other three

Advertising the SVR to 8million Londoners

I have a soft spot for the LT Panniers.

I was surprised to see 5764 in the bay at Kidderminster today. Has it been there since coming back from the charity event at Worcester?

I'm still experimenting but have worked out how to post images from my mobile to my blog. Quality not as good as from a proper camera, but could probably be improved with editing.

http://www.sharpos-world.co.uk/blog/?p=5531

Also uploaded posts of SKP & D8059 to the blog. Probably won't upload many photos this way but it could be useful if I do see something of interest when I'm out and about, and it doesn't need a password to see the images!

Sharpo: On the extreme right background of the photo, is that some enclosed scaffolding on the side of the carriage works, or something completely different? Just cannot quite reconcile what it is.

No, it's that corrugated sheet cover at the front of the building, where the hoist is/was?

You'll know what I mean from this:-
