70013 Oliver Cromwell
70013 Oliver Cromwell
My favourite engine watering at Loughborough with its 12A shedplate (Carlisle Kingsmoor).
I think this photo gives a similar Kingsmoor atmosphere.
I clambered on it as a young boy and Bressingham, it has been there since 1968.

Personally I prefer the 32A shedplate (Norwich), there are plans for 2013 to do Norwich to London servies again with 70013 and 70000. 70000 has been outshopped in green again with a Stratford white roof. The engine recently (24.1.12) hauled the royal train. See link (youtube LinkExternal link
