Not strictly LNWR I know, but I am trying to find a photo or photos of either LMS numbers 51 or 55 locos which were shedded at Macclesfield in the 1930s.
Does any member have such photos, or can anyone please point me to any published photos of either or both locos?
Any help will be much appreciated.
Quentin

According to my 1943 ABC the LMS Fowler 3P 2-6-2T locomotives (parallel boiler) were a class of 70 built 1930 onwards at Derby. They were originally numbered 15500 to 15569. They were renumbered in 1934 from 1 to 70 incl. There is a photograph of 15565 (later to become 66) in Essery & Jenkinson 'LMS Locomotives' Volume 1. plate 14 at Derby shortly after it was built. The photograph caption implies that the 2-6-2Ts were much less successful than the larger 1927 built 4P 2-6-4T class which were re-numbered 2300 to 2424 in the 1934 renumbering. I have not yet found any photographs of your No's 51 & 55 Macclesfield locomotives.
Perhaps others records will be able to assist you further

There's a photo of No 55, said to be taken during WW2 at Sutton just south of Macclesfield Central, in Railways of the Macclesfield District by Basil Jeuda (Wyvern Publications, 1984) on p56.

The photo is credited to the "H Smith collection".

Thanks to Peter and Harry for their information.

I had forgotten about 'Railways of the Macclesfield District' but have now dug out my copy and found the photo. Not one of the best it has to be said, but added to other photo references will perhaps provide some detail for the model I have commissioned.

Thanks again, and any further contributions will be most welcome.
