The number of this locomotive is 77? - which would be a post 1907 grouping number. This identifies the locomotive as originally numbered 86?, built 1904-1905 in Derby for the Midland Railway. Designed by Samuel W Johnson, between 1900 and 1905 some 80 locomotives of this type were built - of which 20 were of this sub-type, having a G8A boiler at 200psi. This was a 53 ton 2 cylinder Class 3 4-4-0 engine, with a Belpaire firebox. All engines of this type had been withdrawn by 1953 and none are preserved.

Close inspection might suggest that the locomotive number is 770.

Another one of those iconic images from the Interwar Period and the latter stages of The Age of Steam, which surely deserves a place in the Aerofilms book.

A superb photo of a Johnson 3P in fukll flight. Note the Midland Railway designed and built 12 wheeled Clerestory Coaches.
