Kings Norton Locomotives: mrknpreg300
A pre-World War One view of MR 4-4-0 2P No 416 as it has
heads an express train south of Kings Norton in 1911. Unusually this locomotive
has not been fitted with the water guards normally seen under the buffer of MR
locomotives. Another member of the MR's 483 class, No 416 was built by Sharp
Stewart in May 1892 and was to remain in service until May 1959 when it was
withdrawn from 17A Derby shed to be scrapped by Crewe works in July 1959.
