61406 front + cleaner

One of Grantham's young cleaners with a B1 locomotive. If you recognise who this is please email grantham35b@hotmail.co.uk.
The small plate near the bottom of the smokebox door (40B) denoted that the engine was based at Immingham, and the 'SC' tells us that it has self-cleaning apparatus installed, which reduced the need to clear ash from the smokebox.
