LNWR liveried Whale 'Precursor' class 4-4-0 no. 1 Clive photographed circa 1919 at Poulton-le-Fylde. LNWR no. 1 was built in 1907, became LMSR no. 5253 and was withdrawn in November 1930. A working life of only 23 years is quite short for a relatively successful locomotive type. [Location supplied by Philip Millard to whom go my grateful thanks]
