L99 aka 7715 at Crewe

0-6-0PT L.99 at a Crewe works open day.
L.99 was built by Kerr Stuart in 1930 being outshopped as 7715 in GWR guise. Sold to London Transport in 1963 and renumbered L.99. Preserved in 1970.
Now at the Buckinghamshire railway Centre as 7715 there is some talk of returning her to LT colours as L.99.

This loco is down to apear at this summers open weekend at Tyseley on 25/26 june 2011 as L94

Hate to contradict but my info says it should be 7752 as L.94 at Tyseley in June. She is currently having a fast track overhaul to get her ready in time. Mind you there are 2 more operational, be good if they had all 4 running.
L92(5775), L95(5764), L99(7715) and L94(7752) if only...
