Hmm - reminiscent of a J72's style of numbering. I wonder if it had paid a visit to Darlington Works at some point?

There was at least one Jinty went through Darlington in the 1960s and came out with this style of numbering. I remember seeing a picture of it (in 'Modern Railways'?) at the time.

And it was this one (ironically, a Crewe based machine I think!). A tempting subject for a model, but falls into the 'one-off' trap...

Pictures of 46243 "City Of Lancaster" in various stages of destruction are particularly poignant given that the loco was apparently the subject of a failed preservation bid - the story goes that the Wigan scrap dealer had agreed to resell the loco to (IIRC) Dr Peter Beet (later to purchase Ivatt 2MT 46441) but BR blocked the deal, invoking the clause stipulating that locos sold as scrap had to actually be scrapped. A tragic loss!

Can anyone else substantiate this or add anything to it?
