BR/LMS/MR Fowler Midland Railway Compound Class 4P No. 41125 at an unknown location and date. Built ay Horwich Works in December 1925, it was withdrawn from 63A Perth South shed in March 1953 and cut up at Kilmarnock Works (B.R.) circe 1953. The loco is double heading the train along with a Stanier Jubilee class loco.

The London, Midland and Scottish Railway Compound 4-4-0 was a class of steam locomotive designed for passenger work. One hundred and ninety five engines were built by the LMS, adding to the 45 Midland Railway 1000 Class, to which they were almost identical. The most obvious difference is that the driving wheel diameter was reduced from 7 ft 0 in on the Midland locomotive to 6 ft 9 in on the LMS version. They were given the power classification 4P.

The LMS continued the Midland numbering from 1045 to 1199 and then started in the lower block of 900939. After nationalisation in 1948, BR added 40000 to their numbers so they became 4090040939 and 4104541199. None has survived to preservation, though the first of the Midland 1000 Class engines has.
