LMS Period Locomotives: lnwrbns_lms1952
Ex-LTSR 2P 4-4-2T No 2109 is seen standing at the West end
of Platform 6 on a New Street to Redditch local passenger service on Thursday
20th June 35. Built in June 1903 as LTSR No 68 'Mark Lane' by the North British
Locomotive Company No 2109 was, along with her class sisters, displaced by
Stanier's new 3 cylinder tank locomotives with many cascading to the Midlands.
The performance of the class on local services was sufficiently successful to
see No 2109 remain in service until March 1951 when it was withdrawn from
Nottingham shed to be scrapped in April 1951 by Crewe works.
