Sometimes a negative comes my way that takes my breath away and this is one such. Maunsell 'Lord Nelson' 4-6-0 No. 859 Lord Hood is depicted here leaving Waterloo with a west of England express in 1940. 859 was built in March 1929 and was initially allocated to Stewarts Lane and remained there until February 1940 after which the western section became its permanent home starting with Nine Elms until 1958 and then Eastleigh for the last three years and it was from there that withdrawal came in December 1961.
