Ex-LSWR Drummond L11 class 4-4-0 No. 437 (built 12/1906, withdrawn 4/52) was latterly used for 'odd jobs' - local goods etc. Nine Elms Depot was hidden from the main lines out of Waterloo on the Down (east) side south of Vauxhall. It lasted until the End of Steam, being closed on 9/767, then soon demolished and replaced by the New Covent Garden Market, but in 1946 it had an allocation of 107 locomotives - all steam:- 10 4-6-2, 37 4-6-0, 17 4-4-0, 5 2-6-0, 5 0-6-0, 1 0-8-0T, 10 0-6-0T, 19 0-4-4T and 3 0-4-2T, a motley collection of 18 different classes.
