LMS Stanier Class 5 45305 Alderman A.E. Draper
5305 was built by Armstrong-Whitworth of Newcastle-on-Tyne in 1936, works No 1360. She spent most of her life based in North-West England. After nationalisation in 1948, British Railways renumbered her 45305.

45305 survived to the last month of steam on British Railways, August 1968 and was withdrawn from Lostock shed.45305 was sold to scrap merchants Albert Drapers and Sons Ltd. of Hull. The owner of the scrapyard, A.E. Draper saved the engine, merely that it was the cleanest engine in the yard. The locomotive is still owned by the scrapyard but is looked after by the 5305 Locomotive Association.

This was an lucky and unplanned steam sighting at sheffield. I just got off the train waiting for a connection to Leeds. Then a couple of puffs and lots of spotters confirmed a steam engine was in the station.
