Named Blue Funnel Line but changed as above immediately after.
Given S prefix in works, but renumbered as 35019 before returning to traffic.
Fitted with LMS tender and long smoke deflectors in May 48 for loco exchanges but did not take part. Regular tender re-fitted June 48
Renumbered S21C5 in March 1948, this was the only MN to carry the S prefix.
Tender still lettered 'Southern'.
