E Course - Aylesbury - 18th June 1934

London Transport 4-4-0T, 23, freshly repainted earlier in 1934, has arrived at Aylesbury from Quainton Road with wagons from the Brill branch and from other Metropolitan Stations to Verney. Metropolitan Railway 23, built by Beyer, Peacock & Co. in 1866, became LPTB property in 1934 and was renumbered L45 in 1938. After restoration at Neasden it was in Clapham Museum from 1961 to 1963 and 1964 to 1973, at Syon Park from 1973 and will be exhibited at the new Covent Garden Transport Museum when it opens - probably in 1980.
