James Johnson

James Johnson was the son of S.W. Johnson. He was the locomotive superintendent of the GNSR for only four years, from 1890 to 1894. During this short period, he developed a standard 4-4-0 design (LNER D41) with 6ft 1in coupled wheels. This design was used for the rest of the GNSR's existence. He also designed a successful 0-4-4T which became the LNER G10.
