92029, Kettering MPD, 25th August 1962
Former Crosti-boilered BR Standard 9F 2-10-0 No. 92029 after the Crosti pre-heater boiler was sealed off. Ten engines were built in 1955 with the Crosti pre-heaters but they were not a great success and became conventional engines after a few years. As they had slightly smaller boilers than the normal 2-10-0s they were classified as 8F rather than 9F. The loco, looking in pretty good external condition, was allocated to 15B, Kettering shed at the time and is seen here at its home depot on Saturday 25th August 1962. B&W Neg No. 179.
