More on Caledonian Railway No. 419 (LMS 15189 and BR 55189)

CR 419 (55189) was built by the Caledonian Railway at St Rollox Works, Glasgow, in 1907/8? No 419 was designed by J.F. Mcintosh for branch line work, fast suburban and banking duties. Caledonian Railway 419 is the flagship of the Scottish Railway Preservation Society. It appears on the societyís letter heading and has represented the SRPS at numerous events on both sides of the border. No 419ís earliest service is not chronicled but by World War One 419 was allocated to Polmadie to work suburban trains out of Glasgow Central, a duty which it resumed in the early 1950s. However, still in Caledonian days it went south to Lockerbie where contrasting duties would have been light passenger work on the branch line to Dumfries and banking turns on heavy trains from Beattock to Beattock summit. Following the formation of the London Midland and Scottish Railway in 1923, the CR 419 locomotive became LMS No 15189 and its Caledonian Railway blue livery gave way to a more sombre black. It was then allocated to Ardrossan shed and later Edinburgh Dalry Road. The LMS gave it a new boiler and fitted vacuum brakes to supplement the Westinghouse equipment favoured by the Caledonian. The 1948 nationalisation of the railways brought the locomotive a change of number to British Railways BR number 55189 and the legend British Railways on the tank sides. It was out-shopped in this style on July 6 1949. Line closures in the Edinburgh suburbs caused 55189 to be transferred back to Polmadie, from which depot it did empty stock duties between Glasgow Central and Larkfield carriage sidings from 1952-59, plus the occasional diagram round the Cathcart Circle and into Lanarkshire. During this time 55189 acquired a stovepipe chimney, which the SRPS later replaced with a Caledonian example from a sister engine destined for the scrapheap. No 55189ís working life ended on humdrum pilot duties at Carstairs, where it was allocated until withdrawn from service in December 1962, along with 200 other steam engines in Scotland; surely the largest number to go at one time, BUT, it is now wonderfully restored to full working order and CR 419 is pretty sight in its Caledonian Railway blue livery.
