    Guilty!

    I'd post my video but a) - it's more of a record of the event than a masterpiece! And
    b) it's 127MB

    At least Black 5s (but not 44932) existed at the time of the blitz, light Bulleid Pacifics not built until 1945 onwards

    But how many people - apart from pedants - will know that in the build of the Black 5s 45000 - 45499 come before 44932 ?

    Point of order, I travelled in 4-SUB 4732 as late as 1991, when it worked Wimbledon depot open day shuttles.

    4732 remained in the capital fleet for some years after the rest of the class were withdrawn, but it was effectively preserved and worked with 2BIL 2090.
    Later it was transferred to NRM ownership.

    Cheers, Neil

    4732 belongs to the Heritage Electric Trains Trust. 2090 belongs to the NRM.

    That info was from a very reliable source, and as she's now at Edinburgh, seems that it was solved.
