A touch of France at Carnforth

SNCF Pacific 231K22 at Carnforth Steamtown in 1973. I don't know all the details of how she came to be there but she is now in Germany.

A snippet from the WorldRailFans web site forum:
"The 231 K 22 had been bought by an Englishman, Dr. Peter Beet, who eventually moved it to Carnforth, however with tender 38 A 66."
I believe that this and 19 other locomotives in the series were built for the PLM around 1912 by Henschel & Sohn, in Kassel, Germany, due to the prevailing lack of locomotive building capacity in France at the time. After much rebuilding they were inherited by the SNCF.
