Leicester Railway Society: 30/12/61
Ex-LMSR Fowler 4MT class 2-6-4T no. 42331 keeps itself warm in decidedly inclement weather at Countesthorpe during this tour which marked the last day of passenger services on the former Midland Railway line between Leicester and Rugby. Apparently the tour stopped for photography at all stations and halts en route but returned post haste from Rugby to Leicester. No. 42331 had been a Leicester Midland allocated engine from nationalisation until withdrawal in September 1962.
