When Bartlow was in Malaya - The Virgin Soldiers


Here is FMSR No.531.01 at the National Museum, Kuala Lumpur on 28 February 2015. She now has the correct type of 8-wheel bogie tender fitted for oil burning (see text) and somewhat disfiguring livery embellishments. The oil tank on the tender was not replicated on the pseudo 531.03 at Bartlow. This and the previous view provide interesting comparisons with the Stanier Black Five (see earlier picture) and the disguised No.44781 at Bartlow (see later picture).
