62712 MORAYSHIRE on display at Shildon NRM where the rest of the photographs were taken. 62712 was really well turned out and in almost the same condition as when she retired from work with British Railway and is in full working order!.

 

LNER steam locomotive No.246 was built and completed at Darlington North Road Works in 1928. From 1928 to Nationalisation in 1948 62712 was shedded at Dundee, Perth, Haymarket and St Margarets. By the time 62712 reached Haymarket in 1944 "Morayshire" had undergone five general overhauls and one heavy overhaul including new frames and cylinders in 1935 and the boiler changed four times.

 

62712 did a few 'steam shuffles' up and down the short length of track which is part of Shildon NRM
