Ex LNER Class A3 No 60084 Trigo. The final appearance of the ex LNER A3 Class. And, of course, in the GWR livery which, to me, looks totally wrong.  Why BR decided that a double chimney and smoke deflectors would be fitted to the Class beats me. For thirty years or more the class worked the fastest trains on the LNER system with a single chimney and smoke didn't seem to bother the drivers. Of course, when the decision was made to fit the Kylchap double chimney the consequent lower draught would probably necessitate the fitting of smoke deflectors
