This is because the list of modifications diminished as they were put into the building programme and only half of these changes were required on later batches.Nevertheless there are many more photos of these later builds, primarily because enthusiasts began to realise that extinction was on the horizon, so perhaps the additional photos will remedy the imbalance...' Upon nationalisation of the 'Big Four' railway companies in 1948, the Railway Executive of the British Transport Commission (BTC) announced its preference for developing future steam motive power rather than dabbling with unproven diesel traction.Their willingness to participate in its construction with no prospect of financial gain, just the satisfaction of being involved, is bloody marvellous.
And now here we are with three finished pages…or are they?
The interest shown by modellers has spurred Derek to suggest a series of articles on the 'Britannias' that will be of particular interest to model makers... Following the success of Derek's in-depth article 'Changing Standards' on Page 90 and his full history of the first batch of locomotives Nos 70000-70024 on the previous page, it was decided to produce a third page featuring the second and third batches of BR Standard Class Pacific locomotives Nos 70025-70054.
No 70025 went new to Rugby Testing Plant on 13 September 1952 and its first shed in May 1953 was Cardiff Canton where it remained for eight years.
Its later sheds were Aston, Crewe North, Crewe South, Llandudno Junction and Kingmoor from where it was withdrawn during the week ending 3 December 1967 and sold for scrap to Campbells at Airdrie.
All the Britannia class locomotives were built with a LNER type Return Crank (item 15), and 70025 did manage to retain hers right to the end, thus becoming only one of 7 to do the same, whereas all of the other 48 engines lost theirs in preference to the LMS version, this being easy to spot, because the crank was affixed with 4 bolts.
The reason for the change from the original to the LMS type was that cracks were said to appear in the former, and with at least 2 locomotives the original was modified, then the LMS type was changed back to the LNER version of the return crank, but more of that later.

These amounted to 6 items: item 6 - the low dome of the boiler (which was only applied to Nos.
Likewise, the ATC (Automatic Train Control) (item 20) and its relative parts were removed, but 70025 had the BR version, the AWS (item 20), fitted at Crewe at the end of 1962.
It transpired that a total of 14 Britannias did not have the AWS equipment fitted, and of these, 12 were ex-Western engines, also 70025 did not have a speedometer (item 13) fitted, not ever, and was one of 14 locos that was not so equipped, showing yet again how non-standard the Britannias had become.
