I was looking through my 'green bible, part 3a (more research on the C1's) when I came across a picture of a GC Atlantic C4/4 6083 hauling a Kings Cross-Cambridge train at New Southgate in 1937, which kind of stunned me for a second, as I've never heard of one of these loco's working on the GN mainline, dose anyone have anymore information on these loco's working in the Kings Cross area. :D

I can't help with any further information I'm afraid Manna, but do send my encouragement as 6083 is also on my list of locomotives to eventually model. :)

However, I can provide the following link to a photograph of 6083 which is larger than the picture in the RTCS book.

6083 was based at Cambridge Shed between 4-1936 and 4-1938, replacing a withdrawn C2.

Thanks for the reply's, it was a bit of a surprise to find one working the GN mainline, very interesting.
