A night time shot of Hughes 'Crab' class mogul no. 42818 at its home shed of Saltley. Built by the LMSR at Horwich works in July 1929, 42818 was fitted with Lentz valve gear in 1931 but was later equipped with Reidinger valve gear in 1953 whilst allocated to Saltley mpd. Reallocation to Burton-on-Trent mpd came in August 1954 and withdrawal was in May 1962 at the same depot.
