PLA No. 79

Postby Trainman119 » Fri Nov 17, 2017 6:42 pm

Does anyone know what the builders name and number were for steam locomotive No. 79 working at Port of London Authority. Was it an Austerity 0-6-0ST ?? I have found photos of: 80, 81, 82, 84, 86 & 87 on an RCTS Site. THANK YOU,
ROY

PLA 79 is/was HE 2414 of 1941/1942. Not exactly an Austerity, but one of the type that led to the Austys, I think. These had smaller wheels. 4ft 0 1/2in rather than 4ft 3in. (Geoff Hill)
