On the turntable at Barrowhill

A steamy scene at Barrowhill with 2-6-2T 84019 on the turntable. Except that, sadly, 84019 no longer exists. It is LMS 41312 with a make over.
The event was the recreation of an exhibition at, I think, Willesdon, in the 50's or 60's. None of the class were saved so look alike 41312 was drafted in.
In the background 70000 Britannia made over as Hereward the Wake can be seen.

Shows how similar these were. Sometimes I wonder why the 84xxx were built when there were all these ex-LMS designs on the go some of which were still being built into BR days.

The H.G. Ivatt design of 1946 was modified in its details to incorporate BR standard fittings.
