Albert - a J1 2-4-2
Furness Railway's No 73, a J1 2-4-2T locomotive and basis for "Albert"

No 73 here (works no 2248) did not survive into LMS ownership, being withdrawn in 1919. Originally built in 1872 as an E1 2-4-0 tender engine, one of a batch of 7 converted to J1 2-4-2 tank engines in 1891. The J1's serviced the Furness Railway's Lakeside branch and local through points between Kendal/Morecambe and Grange.

From p 78, "Furness Railway Its Rise and Development 1846-1923" by W McGowan Gradon, 1946.
