Q19.11 - B16 Class 4-6-0s York South Shed 1961

On a first visit to York on or around 31st August 1961, several B16s were stored alongside York South shed including 61419 and 61431. Can anyone advise on the other ones? It is known that some were moved to York North shed soon afterwards and then to Darlington Works for scrap. Yeadon’s Register shows 61419 and 61431 condemned in September 1961. (Andrew Lait: 19501)
