Close up of image 'lnwrsc92' showing Stanier 2-6-2T No 40080 in a relatively clean condition, in British Railway's lined black livery. The livery was based upon the former LNWR livery and was applied to most mixed traffic locomotives operated by British Railways although as was their want, the Western Division was soon applying their version of GWR lined Brunswick Green to such locomotives. Built in March 1935 at Crewe works No 40080 remained in service until September 1962 when it was withdrawn from Willesden shed to be scrapped in 1963.
