LMS Route: Evesham to Birmingham

Kings Norton Locomotives: mrknlms219

Ex-MR 1P outside-framed 2-4-0 No 198 is seen on a local Evesham passenger train in January 1925

Ex-MR 1P 2-4-0 outside-framed No 198 is seen on a cold January day in 1925 working a local Evesham passenger train. This locomotive is an update on the design seen in image 'mrknlms218' and noticeable changes include a straight instead of curved running plate, only one set of springs are above the running plate and the fitting of more modern safety valves and dome. A member of the MR's 1347 class No 198 was built at Derby works in 1877 and lasted another five years in service before being withdrawn for scrapping in December 1930 at Derby works.
