Remarks & Notes 
LMS 44767 at Leicester North during the Great Central Railway's 'Collecting the Goods' Mini Gala Weekend. 4767 was completed on the last day of the LMS, 31 December 1947 at Crewe Works. It was unique amongst the 842 strong Black 5 class in that it featured outside Stephenson link motion, which can be clearly seen in this photo, in addition to other experimental features; a double chimney, Timken roller bearings throughout and electric lighting. These modifications were part of a series of experiments by George Ivatt to improve the already excellent William Stanier-designed black five. 4767 was renumbered 44767 by British Railways after nationalisation in 1948. Its double chimney was removed in 1953. It was withdrawn in December 1967 after a working life of only 20 years. In preservation it has carried the name 'George Stephenson' though it never bore this in service.
