Spent a family day in York yesterday, but managed to sneak off to the NRM to see if anythings changed. (Well, you can't go to York without going to the NRM, can you???).
Herewith a few pics from my visit.

I can remember in my childhood, going into Sheffield (still some parts 'bombed out' after the war) and seeing these loco's going over "t' Wicker Arches" and into Sheffield Victoria station via the Woodhead line from Manchester, long gone now!

Despite my being a "Southern" fan, these must be a candidate for "Ugliest loco ever built" award! Still, they were built to do a job, and were pretty good at it, I gather!

They were never as clean as this, once they'd left the works!

.....and finally, the last one built, (for BR that is!), "Evening Star", probably barely 'run-in' before withdrawal.

Thanks Keith
I remember visiting the NRM in 1981 as a 7 year old

Dose the sectioned merchant Navy's wheel still turn constantly all day must have done some miles over the years it's looks like it's in a different place in the museum from 1981.
