Raven Q6

Post by neildimmer »

The North Eastern Railway Class T2, classified as Class Q6 by the LNER, is a class of 0-8-0 steam locomotive designed for heavy freight, especially for hauling long coal trains to various collieries in the North Eastern region of the UK, with a maximum speed of 40 miles per hour. One-hundred-and-twenty were built at Darlington Works and Armstrong Whitworth between 1913 and 1921 to the design of Vincent Raven, based on the NER Class T and T1 (LNER Q5). The batch of fifty built by Armstrong Whitworth from 1919 were A-W's first locomotives to be built, after the conversion of their Scotswood works from ordnance to peacetime production

I have added a lot of new photos to this collection

The Raven NER T2/LNER Q6 - another absolute workhorse, for its day, some of which lasted almost to the very end of steam !

Great photographs !

I did look at your pictures briefly the other day, and thought that No.430 looked like a Q5 rather than a Q6.
