44871

Riley and Son purchased LMS 4-6-0 Black 5 Number 44871, the the fourth addition to our home stable, on Wednesday the 20th of September 2006 and 44871 has since been moved into our works for inspection prior to restoration to full mainline running condition, including fitment of AWS, TPWS and OTMR. At the moment we estimate she will be in running condition in early 2008.
