I have added a new collection of photos featuring Ivatt R1 0-8-2 Tank Locomotives, just 5 photos in this collection
The Great Northern Railway (GNR) Class L1 (LNER Class R1) was a 0-8-2T side tank steam locomotive designed by Henry Ivatt. It was originally designed for suburban passenger traffic on the Metropolitan City Lines.
A prototype was built in 1903, but it was overweight, so it was rebuilt with a smaller boiler and shorter side tanks. Ten more engines were then built to this modified design. During the "small boiler" era, the cylinders were lined to 18" to match the boilers.
In 1905 and 1906, thirty more engines were built for working goods trains in the West Riding of Yorkshire. The original eleven engines were not a great success on passenger services so, in 1907, they were moved to the West Riding for goods work.
The first engine was withdrawn in 1927, and the class survived until 1934.
The boilers from Nos. 3138 and 3148 were kept at Doncaster, and were eventually sold for scrap in 1966
