It's always a pleasure to acquire an original shot of one of these locos as they're rather thin on the ground and to get one in colour, just about, is a bonus. This image on E1 Ektachrome film was taken at Crewe on July 24th 1961 and depicts one of the unrebuilt Fowler Patriot 4-6-0's in the form of 45542 which didn't acquire a name following its nominal rebuild from a withdrawn Claughton 4-6-0 back in 1933. No. 45542 was withdrawen from service at Nuneaton mpd (2B) eleven months after this shot was taken.
