Back to froghall
on the 11.30 behind O4 number 63601 where it detached to await
its next turn. I used to see these locomotives working coal trains
through Hale, Cheshire, when 63686 was a regular. The line was
also used by 8F's hauling ICI limestone trains to Northwich.
I photographed the plate on the engine and assumed it gave the
build date until I looked more closely to see 1S12 (not 1812!).
Does anyone know what this means? i.e. lot number.
