One associates the handsome Gresley 2-6-2T classes withScotland and the north east of England but they were originally more widespread. Here we see the 1938 built V3 No. 448 at Northumberland Park on 25/4/41 which, being a wartime picture, is quite rare. No. 448 became 67668 under BR ownership and was withdrawn from service at Edinburgh's St. Margarets shed in December 1962.
The stock looks to me to be ex-GER air braked but I'm no expert.
