I have added a new collection featuring W.Worsdell J25 (NER Class P1) 0-6-0
The NER Class P1 (LNER Class J25) was a class of 0-6-0 steam locomotives of the North Eastern Railway. Class P1 was a development of Class P, having a boiler four inches longer, and a firebox six inches longer. To accommodate these, the wheelbase was increased by nine inches. The cylinder stroke was also increased by two inches.
A total of 120 was built at the North Eastern Railway's locomotive workshops at both Gateshead and Darlington, between 1898 and 1902, in six batches of 20. Their numbers were 1961-2000, 2031–80, 2126-42 with the remainder scattered between 25 and 1743.
London and North Eastern Railway
All passed to the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) in 1923, and their NER numbers were retained, but they were placed in LNER Class J25.
World War II
During World War II, 40 locomotives were loaned to the Great Western Railway (GWR). The first transfers to the GWR occurred in October 1939, and the last was not returned to the LNER until December 1946
Renumbering
The general LNER renumbering scheme was prepared in 1943, and at that time, 85 locomotives of the J25 class remained: these were allotted 5645-5729, being renumbered during 1946, apart from six which had been withdrawn in the interim.
British Railways
Seventy-six locomotives survived into British Railways (BR) ownership in 1948.

I have added a new collection featuring W.Worsdell J26 (NER Class P2) 0-6-0
The NER Class P2 (LNER Class J26) was a class of 0-6-0 steam locomotives of the North Eastern Railway. All 50 locomotives survived into British Railways ownership in 1948 and their BR numbers were BR 65730-65779 renumbered from LNER 5730-5779 . None survive into preservation. The design is based on the P1 and Class P. All were withdrawn from 1952-1966 and scrapped.

I have added a new collection of photos featuring W.Worsdell NER Class X (LNER Class T1) 4-8-0T
The NER Class X (LNER Class T1) was a class of 4-8-0T tank locomotive designed by Wilson Worsdell for the North Eastern Railway. They were intended for use as powerful shunting engines to arrange and move coal wagons for loading into ships. In total 15 were built, 10 by the NER between 1909 and 1910, and a further five in 1925 by the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER). They had three cylinders with divided drive: the inside cylinder driving the leading axle, the outside cylinders driving the centre.
The reversing gear was originally mechanical, but was replaced on all but two of the locomotives (nos. 1355/8) by steam-operated reversing gear between 1932 and 1934. The steam reversing gear was removed again between 1941 and 1947. In 1929, No. 1656 was moved to the newly built Whitemoor Yard at March, Cambridgeshire. In 1932, this locomotive was replaced by Nos. 1355 and 1358. Whitemoor preferred the ex-GCR 0-8-4T (LNER Class S1) for hump shunting, so in 1934 No 1358 was moved to Doncaster, and No. 1355 to Mexborough. In 1936, No. 1355 moved to King's Cross to shunt the engine shed for seven weeks, before joining No. 1358 in Doncaster. These two locomotives were scrapped at Doncaster in 1937. The remaining T1s continued to work coal trains at various docks and marshalling yards throughout North East England. After World War II, coal exports never returned to their pre-war levels. Hence, many of the T1s moved to other sheds for heavy shunting duties.
Numbering
On the North Eastern Railway the first ten locomotives were numbered 1350–9; these numbers were retained following the formation of the LNER on 1 January 1923. The five built in 1925 were given LNER numbers 1656–60. In 1946, the thirteen remaining locomotives were renumbered 9910–22; these all passed to British Railways in 1948, being renumbered 69910-69922 between 1948 and 1951.

I have added a new collection of photos featuring W.Worsdell NER Class O (LNER Class G5)
The NER Class O (LNER Class G5) was a class of 0-4-4T steam locomotives of the North Eastern Railway, designed by the company's Chief Engineer, Wilson Worsdell. They all survived into British Railways ownership in 1948 and their BR numbers were 67240-67349. They were withdrawn between 1950 and 1958.
In July 1957, locomotive No. No. 67338 was used for a series of tests into the performance of concrete sleepers when trains were derailed. These tests took place between Halifax and Keighley, Yorkshire

I have added a new collection of photos featuring W.Worsdell J72 (NER Class E1) 0-6-0 T

The North Eastern Railway Class E1, classified as Class J72 by the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER), is a class of small 0-6-0T steam locomotives designed by Wilson Worsdell for shunting. They had inside cylinders and Stephenson valve gear.
They were a development of the earlier NER Class E (LNER Class J71) 0-6-0T designed by T.W. Worsdell who was Wilson Worsdell's brother.
A total of 113 locomotives were built:

1898–1899, 20 locos built by NER at Darlington Works
1914, 20 locos built by NER at Darlington Works
1920, 10 locos built by NER at Darlington Works
1922, 25 locos built for NER by Armstrong Whitworth & Co
1925, 10 locos built by LNER at Doncaster Works
1949–1951, 28 locos built by British Railways at Darlington Works
This is a rare, possibly unique, example of a locomotive class which was built, completely unchanged, under pre-grouping, post-grouping and British Railways administration.
