  1. Here is a photo I took around 1962 at Carlisle Kingmoor shed with my Box Brownie camera. The quality is not excellent but it shows two peaks, one with, one without a yellow panel with an English Electric Type 1 between them

  4. Ref the duplicate entry for 70044. After checking 70044 is correct with 2 Handholds, Item 2 should now read. 3) Original Full Handrail Deflectors - 17 locomotives in total 70000 70004 70014 70021 70031-70033 70042-70043 70045-70052 With regard to the confusion of 70000, checking my photos again I found that it did indeed have two handholds in later years under BR. However, in preservation it regained the Original Full Handrails 70000 on Carlisle Kingmoor shed in July 1963 with two handholes 70000 at Crewe Works Open Day 21 May 2000 after it it regained the Original Full Handrails
