    No I do not currently volunteer
    The one that I remember was 58246 which was the only one to last that long with its original round-top firebox and traditional Midland safety valve cover. I think that it went the following year.

    In the month fifty two steam locomotives were withdrawn, twenty nine being over fifty years old with Midland Railway 1142 Class 0-6-0 58156 being the oldest, having been built by Beyer Peacock, entering traffic in April 1876 and condemned seventy nine years later. The majority of these withdrawals were the older main line secondary passenger engines and freight engines who were at the bottom of the cascade of power from the continued delivery of the Standards and Diesel Multiple Units. Only four locomotives condemned were Post Grouping designs, namely two from the unremarkable London Midland and Scottish Railway 7F, 0-8-0 class, a London Midland and Scottish Railway 2-6-0-0-6-2T Garret (being replaced by the far more modern a versatile Standard 9F) and a London and North Eastern Railway class V4, 2-6-2 which was one of a class of only two locomotives and therefore “non standard”
