LMS Route: Nuneaton to Leamington

Kenilworth Station: lnwrk167colour

A colourisation by David P Williams of the original black and white photograph showing ex-LNWR 3P 4-4-0 Precursor class No 25319 'Bucephalus' stands at Kenilworth's down platform with a Leamington to Coventry local passenger service circa 1938. Built as LNWR NO 990 at Crewe works in April 1906, No 25319 was renumbered by the LMS twice, first in July 1927 as No 5319 and again before February 1937 - when a Stanier Black 5 took over the number - as No 25319, which it did not retain for too long as it was withdrawn from service in December 1940.
