LNER streamliner locomotive No. 2510 "Quicksilver",
an A4 class 4-6-2 Pacific.
It's colour suggests it to be one of the first four streamliners.
The Garter Blue livery dates this photo between 5/1938 and 10/1943.
M.R.Godwin adds: Quicksilver was one of the first four A4 Pacifics. It was originally painted silver grey for the Silver Jubilee service introduced in 1935. I'm not sure when it was repainted in Garter blue.
Ian Upton: these [photo 1 and 15] are the same location. one is on the bridge. the other looking at it. you can tell by the little hut in the foreground (with the chimney)
