LMS/BR McIntosh Class 439 0-4-4 Tank No. 55189 at Dalry Road Shed 1964
LMS/BR McIntosh Caledonian '439' or 'Standard Passenger' Class 0-4-4 tank No. 55189 at Dalry Road shed on 16th May 1964. Built at St. Rollox works in January 1908, it was withdrawn from 64D Carstairs shed in December 1962. CR 419, (later LMS number 15189, BR 55189) has been preserved and is the flagship of the Scottish Railway Preservation Society. It is currently undergoing a major overhaul and is temporarily out of service. Apart from the driving axle boxes needing to be replaced the engine is in sound mechanical condition and should be back in service towards the end of the 2014 running season.
The Caledonian Railway 439 Class was a class of 0-4-4T steam locomotives. It was a development of earlier Caledonian Railway 0-4-4T locomotives, including the 19 Class and 92 Class, and predecessor of the 431 Class. The 439 Class was introduced by John F. McIntosh in 1900 and a modified version was introduced by William Pickersgill in 1915. Ninety-two engines of the class were built between 1900 and 1925, a few under LMS auspices. Seventy-four Class 439s passed into British Railways ownership in 1948 and they were numbered 55159-55236 (with gaps).
This photo was taken while visiting Edinburgh for the 'The Queen's College Railway & Transport Society Flying Scotsman Rail Tour' which ran from Edinburgh Waverley to Aberdeen and return.
