Ex-MR 2F 0-6-0 No 2994, a member of MR's 1422 class, is seen standing in front of No 3 roundhouse fully prepared for its next turn of duties

Ex-MR 2F 0-6-0 No 2994 is seen in line with other engines in the yard at Saltley on Sunday 28th September 1947. This is one built with 4' 10" wheels (later 4'11"), rather than the standard 5' 3". A feature of these engines that distinguished them visually was the fitting of outside brake pull rods, clearly seen in this photo. Dates & details of the engine's history can be found with image mrb668.
