THE National Railway Museum’s LNWR 2-2-2 No. 3020 Cornwall formally took up residence in the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre’s Oxford Rewley Road station building on June 12.
The 1851 building, which is known as a sister to the Crystal Palace, served as a terminus for the LNWR in Oxford until absorption by the LMS, so provides a fitting home for the famous Single, which will be based there for at least the next two years.
Seen coupled to Cornwall is the centre’s recently restored ex-LSWR Milk Van No. 5025, carrying the full LSWR passenger livery of salmon & umber with black & vermillion lining. DEREK PELLING
