The King Preservation Society moved it to the Buckinghamshire Rly Centre in 1973. It made its main line debut in 1990. 47406 has been moved next to 34073 since the previous photo was taken in March 1972. It arrived at Barry in 1967 and left in 1983 for the Peak Rly Society, Buxton. In 2010 it was working on the Great Central Rly. Photo by Les Tindall.
