At the end of one of the long lines of locomotives resting at the Depot on a Sunday after bringing freight trains during the week to/from the great Whitemoor Marshalling Yards, which the Depot adjoins, is WD No. 77401, freshly restored after its return from NW Europe. No. 77401 was built by NB Loco in 12/43 and was loaned to the GWR for year before being shipped over to the Continent, from which it had just returned (6/47)for loan to the LNER: March Depot had about 50 'Austerities' in its total allocation of 210 locomotives at that time. Under BR, No. 77401 was renumbered 90279, lasting until 6/65.
