61128, 61169 1948-08-361 Aylesbury
Two relatively new B1s seen at Aylesbury in August 1948 on an up double headed train. No 61128 is finished in BR lined black whilst the leading engine, No 61169 carries ex-LNER lined apple green livery. Both were built in 1947 but No 61169 lasted exactly a year longer than No 61128, which was withdrawn in December 1962.
Given that 61128 (from Leicester GC) looks fit and healthy I suspect that the pilot 61169 (from Neasden) has been attached for pathing purposes to get her back to Neasden as economically as possible.
