Maunsell N15X 4-6-0 No. 32333 Remembrance at Brighton mpd. The supplied date for this negative is 26/3/51 which is nonsense as 32333 was still in malachite livery on that date (and for another year) and there's a Standard 4MT 2-6-4T in the background none of which had left Brighton works by that date. So, another all too typical load of cobblers from an EBay seller who, in fairness, is in the same position that I'm in. The loco hasn't been burnished but has been what appears to be whitwashed with even the cylinder cover and the nameplate so treated. The questions are, why is it so tarted up and why go to all that trouble and not make the paintwork sparkle?
