Hunslet built 'Austerity' J94 class 0-6-0ST was originally an MoD acquisition when built in December 1944 and was allocated the number 75148. Following purchase by the LNER in 1946 it was assigned the number 8016 as shown here and would become 68016 in December 1948. During her lifetime 68016 would be allocated to various sheds in the NE region and withdrawal would take place at Darlington in May 1964.
The letters 'RPB' are neatly painted on the cab side sheet but what does that indicate, please?
