Details

On 22 May 1934 the Cock o' the North, the largest steam passenger locomotive Britain has seen, entered service on the LNER. Designed by HN Gresley, it had numerous innovative features and was the first time the 2-8-2 ('Mikado') wheel arrangement had been used for express passenger traffic. Peter Tuffrey draws on his photographic archive and tells its story in the context of the engine designs of Gresley and his contemporaries.
