BR J69 68619 was the ‘celebrity’ Buckjumper and undoubtedly the most photographed member of the class, due to being the Liverpool Street Passenger Pilot and was kept immaculately presented by its crews and Stratford Shed. Carrying several presentation liveries, 68619 is probably best recognised in its 1959 faux-GER fully lined livery with GER crest addition, which it carried to withdrawal in October 1961.
