LMS 3F Jinty build dates...

Hi Folks,
Could someone please tell me when the following 3F Jinty was built and
withdrawn from service? I have searched everywhere but information on
the Jinty seems scarce.
The lomotive number is BR 47514.
I am looking for month/year e.g.
Built : November 1927
Withdrawn : February 1962
I would very much appreciate any help you can give.
Many thanks
Paddy

According to my copy of Brian Haresnapes 'Fowler Locomotives'
7514 was built as number 16597 at Vulcan Foundry in 1927
sorry can't help with month or withdrawal. The book does state that the first of the class to be withdrawn was 47331 in 1959 and the last of the class was 47629 in 1967.
Hope this helps a bit

Just to expand on that slightly, 7514 was part of a batch numbered from 7467-7516 built 1927/1928 at Vulcan. As 7514 is towards the end of that batch, it may be possible that it was actually built in 1928.

Apologies - 16597 (7514) probably was built in 1928 - either need new glasses to read the book or new fingers to type correctly ...
For the record Brian Haresnapes book states that Vulcan built the following batches:
7100 - 7119 1924 16460 - 16509 (7377 - 7426) 1926 16550 - 16554 (7467 - 7471) 1928 16555 - 16560 (7472 - 7477) 1927 16561 - 16599 (7478 - 7516) 1928
which puts 7514 right at the end of the batch oops - sorry Chris

Incidentally, can anyone explain why a 'Jinty' is so called? I remember being told once but I forget the reason.
