Printout from The Last Main Line:

Ex-LMS Black 5, No. 44984, on the last through train to Marylebone.

Ex-LMS Black 5, No. 44984, on the last through train to Marylebone.

L3261. Ex-LMS Black 5, No. 44984, leaves Leicester Central on the last through working to Marylebone - the 17.15 from Nottingham on the 3rd September 1966. To honour the occasion, a wreath was hung on the front of the locomotive's smokebox. This locomotive was a last minute replacement for another class member, No. 44825, which had been specially cleaned at Colwick Shed, but failed with injector problems. Hence No. 44984 was in a filthy external condition, but kept to time to London and on the last working out of Marylebone to Manchester
later that night.
