Can you tell me where these locomotives were scrapped?
63594, 63644, 63658, 63660, 63664, 63824 and 63835.
They are all Robinson 2-8-0s from the former GCR/ROD/LNER, and at least one
was re-built into a Thompson Class 01.
I recorded 63644 in the yard of George Cohen at Cransley, near Kettering, on 7th April 1966. Other class members were present on the same date, but none of those referred to in the question.
The enquirer may like to check www.britishsteam.com, but this is known to carry some inaccurate information probably brought forward from the What Happened to Steam series of books - hence the need for the HSBT Project. (RW:11547)
