GNR 0-8-0's on the North Eastern Railway

Post by Rlangham » Wed Mar 15, 2017 12:39 am

Just noticed on this website on the page for the ex-GNR Q2's that "In 1917, ten "Long Toms" were loaned to the North Eastern Railway (NER) to replace their own Q5s which had been moved to France. " - I wasn't aware of this before, it's the only transfer of loco's to the NER rather than from that I'm aware of during the war (BTP's going to the Highland etc as well as the T1's to France etc). Does anyone know the numbers of the engines that went, and where they were based?

Looks like I now need to get myself a Union Mills Q2....

According to Groves, RCTS Vol 3A

loco numbers were 411/3/9/28/31/3/4/6/7/41. These were all K1's in GNR speak, so Q1's not Q2.
They went back afterwards to Colwick
