20-05-84 45699 Galatea Carnforth

LMS 4-6-0 45699 Galatea boiler is reunited with its frames at Carnforth prior to its move to the Severn Valley Railway. In April 1980 it had been bought as a source of spares for 45690 Leander, which had restored and in main line use.

It was then bought by a group from The Severn Valley Railway for restoration and moved to Kidderminster. In 2002, the locomotive was moved back to the West Coast Railway Company at Carnforth for further restoration.
