LNWR 513 1904 Euston Station

LNWR 513 1904 Euston Station

London & North Western Railway Whale 'Precursor' class 4-4-0 No. 513 'Precursor'. Built at Crewe in March 1904 and withdrawn in July 1936 as LMS No. 5278.

This wonderful view at Euston was taken in 1904 and features the brand new doyen of the 130 locomotives that were George Whale's 'Precursor' class. Amongst the many enamel signs on the right are adverts for Bovril, the Russell Hotel, BDV Cigarettes, Waverley and Owl brand pens and Pears Soap. The tarpaulin covered wagon on the platform is a L&NWR liveried vehicle 'allocated' to Euston.
