45170 not really in steam
Arrived at Bo'ness, home of the Scottish Railway Preservation Society on Saturday 15th November 2014 is this North British Glasgow built LMS/Turkish Railways 8F 2-8-0 locomotive 45170. The picture suggests it might be in steam but this is not the case as the vapour is being supplied by Austerity 0-6-0T number 19 which was moving 45170 around the station. You can now see this locomotive in the Museum of Scottish Railways at Bo'ness
