Nameplate KEITH. Ex LMS 4-6-0 'Jubilee' Class Locomotive number 5655, later under British Railways 45655. Built at Derby in December 1934 under Lot number 113. It was a Manchester Longsight loco for a long period before going to Crewe in 1957. Spent a short time at Llandudno Junction and then returned to Crewe. Final depot in 1961 was Warrington where it stayed until withdrawal from traffic in April 1965. Stored there until November of that year and sold to Birds Bridgend, Glamorgan in December 1965 to be cut up the following year. The plate is stamped with a single punch mark on the rear denoting the left-hand side. It is in outstanding, ex loco condition with lots of Brunswick green on the underside and more importantly, it has all the original 'split-pin' bolts and nuts, quite superb.
