Picture refs. 47446 (60102) and 47450 (60111) appear to be at the same location as ref. 19608 the one of 60046 which we are having trouble identifying. Also picture ref. 19606 (60051) could have been taken there. Now go back to ref. 33284 (60066) which is also at that spot for which someone has suggested Red Hall near Hatfield. I don't know that spot, never went there, so can't confirm or rule it out.

Neil Dimmer: Possible locations, 60082 Doncaster Works, 60084 Work's yard, or possibly works line at Doncaster shed.Tenders of both 82 qnd 84 appear stripped of coal which is an indicator. 60084 also appears to have her right hand motion partially dismantled.
60109 Doncaster shed 36A.
pic 47446: is this 60102 on express? As this engine w/d 11/61 never carried German pattern deflector plates.
When 4472 was overhauled at Darlington 1964-65 they repainted her and painted the cylinder covers in their trademark green, as opposed to black at Doncaster.

Picture 47459 of Bayardo at Hawick in that livery could be one of the first ever shots of it on the Waverley Route, as it was not transferred to Carlisle Canal until 30 May 1948 and was only ex-works in March 1948.

I would put 60102 (47446) & 60111 (47450 : Note; text in the post quotes 60112) as both on the Down Fast around 3/4 to a mile north of Potters Bar; with open space on left = PB golf course, and the London coal levy obelisk not far behind the photographer, on the up side.
Was able to have a look today;- the obelisk is still there, though a few young-ish trees close by, look a little taller than the obelisk, so may virtually hide it when with full foliage.)
