Taken at Barry in August 1968. She entered service in August 1949 and was withdrawn in December 1963 a surprisingly short life. She has also been saved and I think is at Crewe.

7027 is under restoration at Tyseley, otherwise known as Birmingham Railway Museum. I can find no more information sadly so it could be some years before she emerges.

This is actually better news than it sounds. She has been bought by Jeremy Hoskins who owns the following either privately or through the Royal Scot Locomotive and General Trust:- 7027, 5029, 6960, 4270, 46100, 60019, 34046, 35022, 35027, 70000, 92212, 6024. Quite a shed full what? When it comes to restoration he does not normally drag his heels so we await developments with interest.

Now (2016) purchased by enthusiast JonJones-Pratt for restoration at Weston-super-Mare municipal airport and the boiler at Tyseley, forecast for completion to steaming in 6 years. This locomotive has been derelict for over 50 years!
