LNER North Eastern Steam Engines
One of the most unusual shots within this selection is this one taken at Darlington which features ex-works T. W. Worsdell J21 no. 5101 hauling dead Wilson Worsdell designed C6 atlantic no. 2934. The latter will be depicted more closely in a future upload but it is in a decrepit state with valve gear removed. Withdrawal had been in November 1947 but she hung around for some time not being scrapped until 1949. Note, also, the NE legend on the tender. 5101 fared not much better and was withdrawn in 1950 whilst allocated to Blaydon shed.
