After nationalisation inthe newly-formed British Railways tried out a number of liveries with a view to adopting a future standard for its express-passenger engines of Class 8 power classification dark blue and for its fleet of express-passenger locomotives with a lower tractive effort light green.
A total of 70 were built for use primarily on local passenger services, four on the Western Region, the rest on the London Midland Region. Above The class was most easily identifiable from other Ts by their parallel boiler and smokebox curving down to meet the frames, which can be seen in this ER Morten shot of No entering Shrewsbury station with a local passenger train.
Visible in the background is Saddleworth station closed 5th October However, a distinguishing feature of the Stanier design was the pronounced slope to the top of their side-tanks and tapered boiler in contrast to the parallel boiler of the Fowler Ts.
Above No departs from Millersdale on the push-pull shuttle service to Buxton on 16th August No was among only a few survivors of this once extensive class totalling - only thirty six engines were still listed in my winter abc; No was withdrawn in October The majority of the 2Ps were allocated to sheds on the old MR system, chiefly in the Midlands.
Out of the original members built, no fewer than were still listed in my abc, but only just The class was adopted by the LMS as a standard light passenger engine and many went to Scotland for service on the Glasgow and South West routes.
Some tenty years after its introduction in SeptemberNo heads a local train at Ayr on 27th July The loco was withdrawn in October Note the Fowler flat sided tender which differed from the earlier Midland tender with coal rails as seen attached to above.
By the summer of only four remained in BR stock: The 3-cylinder compound arrangement comprised one high pressure cylinder inside the frames, and two low pressure cylinders outside. The Johnson locomotives were subsequently rebuilt as Deeley Compounds and outshopped with smaller 6ft 9in couple wheels and superheater, including the now-preserved in The doyen of the class was destined for preservation after withdrawal in and restored in Midland maroon livery for display at Clapham Transport Museum.
However, with the onset of dieselisation and the introduction of more modern BR Standard steam classes they were early candidates for withdrawal. Here, No is seen on its home shed at Bank Hall 27A This system had its origins back in the Thirties when the LMS carried out a reorganisation of locomotive operation and maintenance, and henceforth all sheds were grouped into districts with the main depot being allocated the code letter A, followed by a number of subsidiary sheds listed in alphabetical order.
In this shot an assortment of locomotives are lined up in front of the road running shed at Willesden depot on 16th June A little over three years later the shed was closed on September 27th and the site cleared to make way for a Freightliner depot.

The timings to Preston was 43 minutes, but as usual our departure was held up by the paper guys, never the Post Office, and this delay could be anything up to eight minutes before we got away.
The advantage of this job was that after starting from platform 11 we passed through platform 3, then across a series of crossings to get onto the Lanky, the fireman could drop the steam pressure to just above lbs then have his pressure up to lbs psi before Salford Station.
Having got the right of way at From then on it was all systems go and both engines were soon pounding through Salford Station, the 5x roaring and the black 5 blasting.Akroyd-Stuart's heavy-oil engine (compared to spark-ignition) is distinctly different from Rudolf Diesel's better-known engine, where ignition is initiated through the heat of compression.
An oil engine will have a compression ratio between and , where a typical diesel engine will have a compression ratio ranging between and . Q; I drove my diesel car for 2 miles on petrol after I filled it up, then it just died on me.
Will it need to be repaired? Answer: This picture (below) is the suction line I use to remove wrong fuel. this was taken when doing a job that had 50 litres of petrol in a diesel mini, this was being taken from the fuel tank as the car had not been started.
