8249 1937-09 Doncaster MPD

8249 1937-09 Doncaster MPD

Ex-Great Eastern Railway A.J. Hill 'J19' class 0-6-0 No. 8249. Built at Stratford in January 1913 as GER No. 1249. Rebuilt with round-topped boiler in May 1935 (replacing Belpaire version) and withdrawn in January 1959 as BR No. 64649.

In September 1937, a relatively unusual visitor to Doncaster MPD is 8249 getting a drink of water. It will have worked there up the GN & GE 'Joint line' from March with coal empties. Of note across the tracks is an ex-GNR 'J52' 0-6-0 with its trailing wheelset removed and supported on an accomodation bogie. A trial for a new class of 0-4-4 Tank perhaps?!
