There are lots of free graphics/viewer programs available that enable you to resize pictures. A good one to try is FastStone.

I discovered today that 'Belvedere' still survives. Its at the Northampton Ironstone museum in unrestored condition.

Great photo of Belvedere with that "streamlined" casing.  Built by Sentinel (Shrewsbury) in 1945 and at the Rochester wharf from 1950 to 1957.

Heres another loco shot taken at Corys in the 50s, this time the loco is 'Belvedere'. The famous crane can be seen in the background.

I found this which will be of interest to Sentinel S4 among others.



marked as sentinel loco Greenwich at William Cory Wharf, Rochester, 1955.
