LNWRS Photo Ref 1998

DX No.49 in original gleaming condition at Shrewsbury (Coleham) engine shed Explain 'Engine Shed'. Notice the very fancy Ramsbottom Explain 'Ramsbottom, John (1814—1897)' chimney Explain 'Chimney', his own safety values Explain 'Safety Valve' (with the long handle), slotted splashers Explain 'Splasher', no cab roof (the driver Explain 'Driver' and fireman Explain 'Fireman' would work with no protection from the elements) and most noticeable no brakes on the engine. It also has a very early form of coupling Explain 'Coupling' - a chain and hook - not very reliable as it tended to fall off after a jolt!
