355 1926 Carlisle London Road MPD
Ex-North Eastern Railway T.W.Worsdell 'F' (LNER 'D22') class 4-4-0 No. 355. Built at Gateshead in November 1887 as NER No. 355 and withdrawn in January 1930.
The former North Eastern Railway's 1836 built, London Road shed in Carlisle seems to have eluded many photographers, closing as early as 1933 but surviving as a stabling point until 1961. Here it is in 1926, perhaps some of the other half a dozen MPDs (yes!) in Carlisle proved to be greater photographic magnets?
