Largs

General view over Largs station on 27 February 1954, as Fowler 2P 4-4-0 no 40608 prepares to get underway with a train for Glasgow St Enoch. Editor's footnote: Additional info from Colin Miller points out on the far right The Old Engine, a stationary boiler that was probably from an old 0-6-0 and mounted on a brick base with timber hut attached for the fireman. It is actually steaming in this picture, supplying heat for the rake of coaches. Its predecessor was a G&SW 4-6-4T. Any photos of the Largs stationary boilers would be welcomed for Railscot publication.
