London and North Eastern Railway

The story of the LNER is the story of the Gresley pacifics, of which 8 are preserved, and of which you can see 4 in these pages! It is arguable that Flying Scotsman is the most famous steam locomotive in the world, but Mallard must give her a (fast) run for the money, since many will also know her as the fastest steam locomotive in the world, reaching 126mph down Stoke Bank in July 1938.

  • Description : Stewart writes:
    I was just reading your ROD page and it refers to the transfer to the GCR of 63601. I sent you a picture of it standing alongside 7821, your ref: 7821+63601-1 on your GWR page . You might like to cross reference it. Or here's a better picture:
    These "O-4" class locomotives were built for the Great Central Railway dating from 1911-14. Designed by J.G.Robinson, they were used for heavy main-line goods traffic, classified as 7F, and delivering a tractive effort of 31325 lb. The design was so successful that it was used by the Railways Operating Division of the British Army during the First World War, and a total of 591 of these locos were eventually completed. Many of these engines became surplus to requirements, and found their way across the world after the war ended. Several (13) ended up on the railways of J & A Brown , q.v.
