Great Central Railway Loughborough Leicestershire 25th June 2012
Gren is emptying the char from the smokebox of Great Central Railway 8K / LNER O4 2-8-0 63601. She was finally taken out of service yesterday & it will be a while before she accumulates any more. Rumour has it that she is in the line for restoration after 48305 & 6990.
The last time she was withdrawn was in 1963 when British Railways laid her aside at Frodingham shed in Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire. Hence the 36C shedplate on the smokebox door.
