LMSR Fowler 'Patriot' class 4-6-0 no. 5507Royal Tank Corps alongside the LMS's experimental diesel railcar at Euston station on an unspecified date in 1938. The railcar was evidently new when this shot was taken and would become better known for its use on St. Pancras - Nottingham services and then on the varsity line between Oxford and Cambridge. The unit was withdrawn at the outbreak of WW2 in 1939 and would never resurface in this form which was a great shame as it still has a modern look to it even today.
Just for the record, 5507 has an 8A Edge Hill shed plate.
