‘Golden Shuttle’ No. 4496 entered traffic in September 1937 in the LNER Garter Blue livery. Throughout the Second World War No. 4496 was painted in wartime black as were the majority of locomotives and on LNER locomotives they also removed the ‘L’ and the ‘R’ leaving ‘NE ’. It has sometimes been believed that this was done to confuse spies but also to reduce the materials and labour needed to maintain the locomotive.
