unknown loco at Ilkley

Post by james b » Thu Feb 20, 2014 3:56 pm

This image was in the Ilkley gazette this week .

Of a locomotive passing over Brook Street railway bridge out of Ilkley Station, date un-known.

[ the bridge was demolished in 1966]

Can any one distinguish the number :?: :?

Not possible to help with the exact number.

But the first 3 digits in a 5 digit set are 428--.

The loco is an LMS 2-6-0 commonly known as a 'crab'. The fourth digit could be any one of 5 numerals, so not much help really.

The date is the 1950s.

Having looked at the allocations there are 9 more likely candidates.

42831/4/7 42851 42861/4/7/9 and 42884.

42851 based at Lancaster from 1956 is perhaps the best fit. But all of this is rather too speculative to be honest.

Hi JASd17,

Yep I think it could be 42851 If she was based at Lancaster ,that could marry up .

As the line during those days ran to Skipton and on wards to Lancaster. There is very little to see , but It could be a light freight train ,as I have a book showing the inside of the shed at Ilkley in 1956 ,with mostly stanier class engines standing "dead.

I don't think Maningham had " crabs " more like "ivatt" class ,for passenger and freight to leeds and skipton.

many thanks for your comment .

Embsay and Bolton Abbey Railway suggests it may have been 42857. Summer 1955 taken by Sybil Parry.
