195

LNER Thompson A2/A3 #60514 “Chamossaire” outside its home shed at New England in the early 1960s. Built in 1946, she never saw her twentieth birthday, being withdrawn in December 1962 and cut up the following year.

All bar one of the fifteen members of the class were named after winners of major flat races in the immediate postwar period with “Chamossaire” winning the St Leger in 1945.
