The Unique A3....60097

Modifications are to be made on one of my A3s, 60039 will become 60097 'Humorist'

Humorist was a unique A3 as she was fitted with a kylchap blast pipe way back in 1938, over 20 years before the rest of the class.

In 1947 she was fitted with Peppercorn Type deflectors in 1947 which she kept right through until she was scrapped, making her a distinctive looking A3.
