Former LSWR Drummond L11 class 4-4-0 no. 157 in store at Eastleigh. This example is shown as an oil burner and due to a shortage of oil was put into store in September 1948 according to Bradley and never saw service again. Apparently, 157 and her oil burnming classmates were forgotten whilst the few surviving coal burners were steadily withdrawn and so survived, albeit dumped, until eventual official withdrawal in March 1952.
