Whilst not regular visitors to the GCR, these fine locos were the standard power on the Midland line. I am particularly fond of the engine featured here as at the end of its BR career 45593 Kolhapur was shedded at Burton and was a regular sight at my local haunts.

On the 26th Feb 1995 5593 Kolhapur makes a fine sight
at Loughborough in a smart LMS black lined livery
