LMS Route: Birmingham New Street to Tamworth

Tamworth High Level Station: mrthl127

Midland Railway 1F 0-6-0 No 2846 rests between duties whilst standing in Tamworth's MR Goods Yard shortly before grouping

Midland Railway double framed 0-6-0 No 2846 is seen shortly before the grouping of 1923, at rest in the company's goods yard at Tamworth. The crew are clearly aware of the photographer, who would have been using a tripod. The engine was allocated to Burton-on-Trent, and is seen as rebuilt with Johnson round top boiler & Deeley rounded eaves cab. Subsequently it was rebuilt by the LMS with a Fowler 'G6' Belpaire boiler, in which form it survived long enough to be allotted a BR number, though this was never carried. Dates & details of the engine's history can be found with image 'mrb1'.
