Ropley,Hampshire: locomotive 70000 'Britannia'
The BR Standard steam locomotives of this class were among the finest express passenger steam locomotives built anywhere in the world. Sadly they were destined to have only short working lives before being replaced by diesels. Only two of the 54 engines of this class have been preserved, 70000 (seen here) and 70013 'Oliver Cromwell'.
