5929 1932-03-26 Rugby Station
Ex-London & North Western Railway Bowen Cooke 'Claughton' class 4-6-0s Nos. 5929 'J.A.F. Aspinall' and 6016 (un-named). 5929 built at Crewe in September 1916 as L&NWR No. 2395. 6016 built in April. 1921 as L&NWR No. 161. Withdrawn in February and January 1935 respectively.
A pair of Bowen Cooke's elegant 'Claughton' class 4-6-0s await their departures from Rugby in March 1932, the one on the right is on the Up through road. The L&YR's 1922 amalgamation with the L&NWR was the reason for the naming of 5929 after Sir John Aspinall, the former CME and General Manager of the 'Lanky'.
