Tweedmouths B1s/K1s were only that clean after overhaul and the last rites Alnmouth - Alnwick still i have a soft spot for both classes. Perhaps BR would have been better off with a few more K1s than some of thier own 2-6-0s. I wonder how many the LNER would have built if it had'nt been for nationalisation.
Hi interested in the area served by 52D. also researching colliery wagonways from same area.

I know a couple of the men who worked the K1s at Alnmouth, and they preferred them to the Ivatt 2-6-0's that they sometimes had. 62011 was considered the best and always steamed well, while 62022 was thought to be a bit sluggish.

The Ivatt Class 4s (clodhoppers)were not particularly well liked in the North East, even allowing for anti -LMS bias. Perhaps they were not as bad as made out, but I remember one driver summing them up with the words, "It's better than walking and that's about all that can be said for it!". The Ivatt Class 2s, by contrast seemed to be better thought of.
