    I have added some new photos to the collection of B.R. Std Britannias
    This collection features 70042-70044 built Crewe 1953
    Including these 2 locos
    Nos.70043 and 70044 were delivered with Westinghouse airbrakes fitted alongside the smokebox and with no smoke deflectors. The two locomotives, which looked radically different from the rest of the class, were allocated to Manchester (Longsight) and ran a series of brake trials on the London Midland main line during the mid-1950s. Subsequently, both had the equipment removed and deflectors fitted.
    Not the best photo but the only one I have of both 70043/4 on a test train
    70043 & 70044 with a test train at Kettering 1st December 1954
