Midland Railway Johnson class 25 4-2-2 no 610

 

Currently the oldest image in my collection, this locomotive was built by the Midland Railway at Derby in 1889 and was designed by Johnson. This class 25 loco has a 4-2-2 wheel arrangement commonlt known as a 'single'. It was scrapped in 1922 and therefore did not enter the service of the LMS at the grouping of 1923. It is pictured here at Elstree on 27th Sept 1917 and the image is from a glass negative.
