Haha - I noticed that too You're very welcome.Thx Peter C ... how it comes, that you are also Peter C as I do. Was just irritated, when I read the answer.
... but many thanks !
Now you've said that, the tender does look more like one which would go with a Ramsbottom Goods loco - the Furness 29 Class' tender looks taller.I came also to the conclusion that it could be Furness Railway engine, but did not want to influence possible answers.
The design would quite fit, also the description found in Victorian & Edwardian locomotives, where there is also a pic of a modified sister engine. See pic below.
What was irritating me, was the design of the tender, which would more fit to a Ramsbottom Goods Engine, but no locomotive number fitting.
I think it's probably a Ramsbottom Goods then!Other thing is that the number plate does not look like saying Furness Railway. It says Railways on the lower side, but what it says above it ... seems to be quite long words.
