Despite appearances, this is not a c.1948 scene at some LNER shed, but Steamtown Carnforth in 1976. While I am not a fan of apple green on big engines, the effect in monochrome is quite pleasing on the B1, spoiled only by it carrying a fictitious name and number (it was delivered as BR No. 61306 from NBL in April 1948).
