Former London Tillbury & Southend Railway 4-4-2T No.41947 on 17th March 1956 at Toton. The rods are off but it looks pretty recent so the despised resident was probably not yet in long-term storage. Photographs of these locomotives working off the LT&SR system are quite scarce, some were based at Mansfield for use on the Worksop to Nottingham services.
The engine was initially allocated to Mansfield MPD and later in February 1956 transferred to Toton. Kirkby in Ashfield shed took over responsibility for passenger tank engines upon closure of Mansfield MPD in March 1960 until the line closed to passengers in October 1964, but by this time these tanks had been withdrawn.
