Lambton No. 29 ready for North Yorks Moors gala

EX-Lambton, Hetton & Joicey Collieries Kitson 0-6-2T No. 29 (4263/1904) was undergoing final painting at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway’s Grosmont works in mid-September prior to its appearance at the railway’s Autumn Steam Gala. 

The latest version of the LH&JC livery is more historically accurate than the loco’s previous guise, with the Lambton Locomotives Trust having undertaken a great deal of research into working out lining widths, and producing a slightly updated font and larger darker green panelled areas. 

No. 29 is seen during the application of the lining by Peter Whitaker of Live Steam Lining. ANDREW JEFFERY
