Destroyed by fire in 2003, rebuilt by 2005, now that is devotion, pictures do this engine no justice at all.

Ed.: 1920 Fowler, CU978, 'John Murphy's Proud Peacocks'.

This is one of a pair consecutive number Fowler SRL's built for John Murphy in 1920 they are unusual in that they carry no ornate brass This is "Renown" the other one is "Repulse"they can often be seen side y side at many Midlands rallys as both engines are based not many miles from each other

Well now you have me living in hope, the only show I see this engine at is the Cheshire Steam Fair.
