Disposal of the V2s

Post by ringing-rock » Sun Mar 19, 2006 10:24 pm

Can anyone please help me to identify a V2 which I saw in Oxley Up Sidings at Wolverhampton in about April 1967?

At that time the Up Sidings contained a string of locos destined for Cashmoor's scrapyard in Great Bridge, mostly ex-LMS class 5s. Among the locos were Jubilee 45600 "Bermuda" and an ex-LNER V2 (a type which I presume to have been rare visitors to ex-GWR metals in the West Midlands).

Can anyone help to identify the V2 loco and which depot it came from?
