Rockcliffe

BR Standard class 9F no 92023, one of the experimental batch of 10 within the class originally built with Crosti boiler and pre-heater, before eventually being rebuilt as conventional steam locomotives. No 92023 is seen here taking a freight under the road bridge at Blackrigg, north east of the village of Rockcliffe, on the WCML in north Cumbria around 1965. The locomotive was withdrawn by BR in November 1967 and cut up at Campbells, Airdrie, approximately 5 months later. [Thanks to Mike Gibb]
