Remarks & Notes 
LMS 8274 (now running in it's Turkish identity and livery TDCC 45160) arrives at Leicester North with the 0900 from Loughborough during the Great Central Railway's 'The GR8 Escape' Weekend. LMS 8274 led a colourful existence. It was built by the North British Locomotive Co in Glasgow to the order of the War Department (WD 348), but was allocated its LMS number. It is thought to have worked for a few weeks in the UK before being shipped to France to assist with supply movements for the British Expeditionary Forces. Many of these locomotives were subsequently sold to railway networks in Italy, Palestine (later Israel), Iraq, Iran, Egypt and Turkey. LMS 8274 was one of 20 shipped to Turkey (others were aboard two ships that were sunk) and became TCDD 45151 Class No 45160 and equipped with local refinements such as a robust cow-catcher, an air compressor and reservoirs. LMS 8274 was repatriated in 1989 and steamed on the Swanage Railway that year, before being stopped for an overhaul that lasted over 20 years. It appeared during the Glous Warks Railway Society's GWR 175 Cotswold Festival of Steam Event in June 2010 as a GWR built example - No 8476 (BR 48476). See photo ID 326957
