14xx Top feeds

Postby zebedeesknees » Sat Jun 06, 2020 4:49 pm

I prefer the appearance of the 14/48/58xx series without top feed, but to find out which loco had one or not and when for the one featured here:- http://www.clag.org.uk/battery-radio.html I started logging the ones I found in pictures in various magazines.

Dates and locations, W for with and N without top feed. Most are duplicated here:- https://www.rail-online.co.uk/p320959101 but there are a couple in my list that are not. There are several in the rail-online pictures that show locos that gained or lost them at different times.

My list

1403 6/52 N? Highworth
1409 25/10/60 N Brimscombe
1420 e/'60s W Hemyock
1421 17/2/62 W Marlow
1427 2/7/57 W Ashburton
1427 15/2/58 W Buckfastleigh
1444 19/4/52 N Wallingford
1445 6/5/58 W Symonds Yat
1445 1/7/62 W Furze Platt
1448 '50s W Bourne End
1450 22/6/63 N Culmstock
1455 10/10/52 N Ferne Br. (?)
1455 27/7/57 N Woofferton
1458 8/10/56 N Stourbridge
1458 12/10/64 N Chalford
1462 24/2/62 W Tiverton Junc.
1473 '50s W Aylesbury

One addition, one complication to Jeremy's list plus a 58 bonus ball...

1437 August 58 Lechlade W
1439 "1950s" with early BR logo probably unlined black Totnes and Buckfastleigh W

5804 December 58 Tetbury W

All the best

According to Peto's Register, 1439 was 'stopped' at Newton Abbot on 19.7.50.

It was then given a Heavy Intermediate repair at Swindon Factory - date recorded as 27 7.50.

The next entry is dated 1.9.50 and has the loco at Ashburton.

The register records that the boiler was changed during the repair - also dated 1.9.50.

The register also notes that the situation regarding top feeds was 'confused by the interchange of boilers'.

I hope this is helpful.

1473 had a top feed in black until it went to works in 1959 and came back green without a top feed.

I have another photo of 1473 with GWR on the tanksides but with a BR smokebox numberplate with no top feed, dated 23rd July 1973 which is a typo so guess it would be 1953.

To plug a gap in the list, I’ve found pictures of 1468 at Fowey in 1961 with a top feed.

There are also photos of 1419 also at Fowey between the 1957 quoted and 1961 still without top feed.
