London and South Western Railway 2-4-0 locomotive No 097 Pegasus. Built by their Nine Elms Works (No. 50 of July 1868).

It was one of nine members of the 2nd “Fireball” class built in 1864 (3 off, Nos. 73 to 75, named Fireball, Firebrand, and Fireking) and 1898 (6 off, Nos. 95 to 100, named Centaur, Castor, Pegasus, Plutus, Phlegon, Python).

No. 75 was withdrawn in 1888, while 99 and 100 were duplicated (had a 0 prefix added to their number) in 1893 and withdrawn in 1899.

This photo was taken from an old original photo we came across while helping to clear the house of a deceased friend. I have uploaded it to Flickr in the hope that it might be interesting to steam enthusiasts.
