42085, Fairburn 2-6-4T at Loughborough

Looking strange with its tanks removed, this engine was photographed on 28 September 2008 in Loughborough shed.
Designed by Charles E. Fairburn for the London Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS), 277 of these locomotives were built between 1945–1951.
This design was based on the earlier Stanier LMS 2-6-4T built from 1935–1943. It was also the basis for the later British Rail Standard Class 4 tank engine. They were used mainly for suburban passenger trains.
This particular engine was built at Brighton in 1951, i.e. by British Railways, and the only other survivor is 42073.
