From 'The Pouteau Listings: The London and North Western Railway': List No. LNW-190. Built as No. 2350 in 1879, "Samson" Class 2-4-0 Centaur was renumbered to 773 the same year. Apparently nearing the end of her working days in November 1894, the engine was transferred to the duplicate list as No. 3200. There was more to come however, for a new twenty-eight year career lay ahead as Engineer Watford, in which guise the engine is seen here, with her new cast nameplate but having lost her number. She was also fitted with a short chimney and centre lamp bracket, and had her earlier tender replaced by an 1,800 gallon type with coal rails and a spectacle plate. She is here seen posing proudly for the camera probably shortly after conversion and coupled to an SD Watford brake van. Engineer Watford's career finally came to an end in 1923.
