NER 2-2-2 1709

  • Description

    May have started life in 1853 as a York, Newcastle and Berwick Railway 2-4-0. Rebuilt by R. Stephenson as 2-2-2 from 2-4-0 (YNR Class 140). 6ft 6in driving wheels and 16x22in cylinders. Further rebuilt under McDonnell and renumbered as No. 1709. In this state it was used on the Hull to Leeds expresses. This photo was taken from an old original photo we came across while helping to clear the house of a deceased friend. I have uploaded it to Flickr in the hope that it might be interesting to steam enthusiasts.
