Jeorge,
Although the Minsterley branch was joint GWR/LNWR and then joint GWR/LMS, it was worked by LNWR/LMS engines and stock so it is very unlikely that a 14XX worked the line.
In earlier days it was LNWR 0-6-2 coal tanks and then Fowler 2-6-2 tanks.
In later years the daily goods was worked by ex-LMS or BR 2MT 2-6-0 tender engines (probably because of the poor state of the track, at least in the 1960s).
I suspect the nearest shed with an allocation of 14XX would have been Oswestry for the Gobowen branch.

That doesn't stop me running a 14XX on my Minsterley-inspired branch line layout though!

Basil
