Big Bertha - new photo

Rate this Entry
While looking for something else I came across this rather nice photo of Big Bertha in the York NRM Photo Archive http://www.nrm.org.uk/ourcollection/...derby&item=314 The photo was taken in 1920 when BB was in MR livery. If you use the Prev link towards the bottom of the page there are two photos of the headlight trial, one of which I have posted before.

    Now that is a nice photo of the old girl. I think she must have been pretty new in that picture. She's all clean and glossy finished.

    One of them says it's a test for the rear light too. That means she had two. I thought I'd seen one on her tender before.

    I think the reference to the "rear" light is a typo. You can see the funnel and the smokebox door in the pic. BB was only a year old when the photo was taken.
