8787 1920s Cambridge shed

8787 1920s Cambridge shed

Ex-Great Eastern Railway J. Holden 'D16/2' class 4-4-0 No. 8787. Built at Stratford in August 1923 as GER No. 1787 and withdrawn in November 1959 as BR No. 62618.

This is one of the two so-called 'Royal Clauds' (8783 & 8787) that were kept in immaculate condition for Royal Train duties, often to take Royalty from London to their Sandringham estates. She is seen here at Cambridge MPD with North Box and Mill Road bridge in the background on the right in the 1920s.
