LMSR Fowler 'Royal Scot' 4-6-0 no. 6169 The Boy Scout. The precise location isn't yet know but my enquiry on the lmsreg Yahoo group elicited the comment, "It is a three track section so that narrows it down considerably - there was a three track section south of Nuneaton".
No. 6169 was built at Derby and was one of the last batch of this class built entering service in October 1930. Rebuilding with tapered boiler was executed in May 1945. BR branding was applied in May 1948 whilst allocated to Longsight mpd and withdrawal came at Annesley in May 1963.
