The jury will be forever out as to whether or not this loco is aesthetically pleasing. Personally, I found it to be ungainly. This is Thompson A2/2 pacific no. 60501 Cock o' the North which was the 1943 rebuild from Gresley's handsome P2 class 2-8-2 of 1934 bearing the same name. The location is York mpd on July 16th, 1950.
The Cock was withdrawn in February 1960 and was dismantled at Doncaster in the following April.
