ELEGANT STEAM
London Midland & Scottish Railway
Jubilee Class No 5703 Thunderer. Another of the Jubilee Class only this time from the fireman's side (see No 5656 Cockrane for a view of the drivers side). For this locomotive I have attached a Fowler 3500 gal tender. Several of the class had these tenders and, in my view, they don't suit the locomotive as well as the Stanier 4000 gal tender.  However, they did exist in this form.
I remember seeing this locomotive at Wakefield Kirkgate station probably on a Manchester-Blackpool train. It was in wartime black and possibly a bit run down. Anyway, I still loved to see it.
