History of '5428'
New to the LMS 10/1937 with Armstrong Whitworth works number 1483. 5428 was initially allocated to Patricroft (10C). When under BR it moved to 12B Carlisle Upperby where it remained for around 7 years. A re-allocation to Holbeck (20A) came at the beginning of December 1955 followed then by spells at Farnley Junction (55C), Stourton (55B) and then back to Holbeck (then known as 55A). From here 5428, which was now known as 45428 was bought for preservation and moved to the Birmingham Railway Museum at Tyseley in 1968. Whilst at Tyseley the locomotive was named after the former Bishop of Wakefield Eric Treacy. In the early 1980s 5428 moved to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway where she continues to reside.
