This is the second page of Mike Henney's photo collection showing
previously unpublished memories of the disappearing steam engines, during
the 1960's, and the introduction of the new diesel traction that followed.


The seven photos below were taken at Croes Newydd MPD.
The shed was originally coded (84J) and then (89B) until boundary changes
on September 9th 1963 forced the shed to be recoded yet again to (6C).

In May of 1965 she was a Banbury loco, but was based at Tyseley when withdrawn in December 1965.
The engine is missing name and number plates but note how carelessly the number has been hand painted on the cab side
compared to the shot of pannier tank 9641 taken just over a year later, shown further down this page.
