57698 1949 Corkerhill

Andy Neil comments "57698 is an ex Highland Railway, (Not CR), Barney class loco.They are very similar to the small Jumbos of the CR.

57698 started life in 1900 as HR no: 139. Under LMS ownership it became no: 17698. It appears that the last original HR boiler that it carried was believed to have been replaced in 1940/1, with a CR/LMS N34 boiler.
12 of this class were built and all went on to become under LMS ownership.
7 went into BR ownership, but only, 57695, 57697 and 57698 carried BR numbers.
57698 only lasted until 12/1951.
Only 57695 lasted longer, until 1/1952! "
