    Hi Neil,

    Photo 20/31 90763 is at Eastleigh Depot with the houses of Campbell Road in the background. Was a loco transferred from the MOD fleet and was put through Eastleigh Works for overhaul, repainting and numbering into BR number series? Eastleigh did quite a number of repairs for Longmoor in postwar years.

    Cheers, Neil
