Gresley J50 & J51 0-6-0T

Post by neildimmer »

I have added a new collection featuring the Gresley J50 & J51 (GNR J23) 0-6-0T

Gresley designed the Great Northern Railway (GNR) Class J23 (LNER J51) 0-6-0T in 1913 for working the steeply graded lines in the West Riding. Designed to replace the J3, J4, and J7 tender locomotives, an 18.5in cylinder diameter was chosen to produce a greater power output. Also, as most of the work involved shunting and short trip workings, Gresley chose a tank engine design. The tanks increased the adhesive weight, which was particularly useful on intended steeply graded lines. Traditional Doncaster saddletanks were rejected in favour of full-length side tanks. These tanks were sloped forward to avoid obstructing the driver's view. Apertures were also provided to enable easy access to the motion. The long side-tanks would inspire the nickname "Submarine".

Maybe someone else can agree or confirm "594 unknown location Gresley J50 & J51 (GNR J23) 0-6-0 .jpg" was, I believe, taken located at Copley Hill, Leeds.
