Nene Valley Railway Peterborough Cambridgeshire 1st July 2012
LMS Fowler 4F 0-6-0 44422 has just arrived with 13.30 train from Yarwell Junction. The fireman has gone under and the loco will run round in a few minutes to return to Wansford. We were running under express lamps but stopped at every station.
British Railways Southern Region shed code 71G is Bath (S&D) a long way from Peterborough but where 44422 was allocated in the late 1940s. The engine was withdrawn by BR in 1965 from Gloucester Horton Road shed (85B).
