 Hi Howbiman

 

Your quote from Donald Rumsfeld is very similar to one from Sir Humphrey Appleby (Permanent Secretary in the Dept of Administrive Affairs, and later Cabinet Secretary)    Laughing

 @ LC&DR

 

Glad to hear that she's still on the mend  -  albeit slowly. At least it's improvement. SWMBO is very nearly back to normal, the only time it's a problem is if she tries to be a bit over ambitious when walking and ends up using a stick. Nagging muscles fully recovered!!!!   Yell

It's a pity we haven't got a Tyneside Articulated emu (or a G5, A8, B16, D20, J21 et al..)

 Deepest sympathy, Jeff, such a young age.

 What's it worth to keep quiet?

 

How's SWMBO?

 Hi Rob

 

The photo from above appears to solve the ? about the tender - pretty certain it is the Coronation type. It's even got the coal pusher.

 

Actually, saying 'the Coronation type' is a bit of a simplification  -  there were 4 types although you need expert knowledge to tell them apart. Photos of the types, and their allocation, can be found in Profiles of the Duchesses by David Jenkinson (I beleive he was a 'crab' as well) who was to the LMS what LC&DR and Caiptean are to the Southern

 

Over the next few days I'll try to send the relevant pages to you. If you haven't got them by the end of the comimg weekend please remind me (I mean that)

Hi Rob

 

The unpainted one appears to be a De-streamlined loco at the end of its life (including Co Edinburgh) with the exception of 46242 which had the curved footplate end fitted during the repairs after the Harrow accident.

However the tender looks as though it could be the standard Stanier tender, rather than that fitted to the Pacifics, Could be camera angle, you can only be sure with a photo taken from about 45 degrees and showing sides and back.

I hope this helps. I'm not an LMS expert so don't be surprised if Fazy comes on to put me right!!      Smile
