L3386. In the latter years of the Great Central Railway, a new class of fast passenger locomotive was built, and this was the John G. Robinson designed Class 9P 4-6-0's. A smaller wheeled version for freight services, known as the 9Q, was later designed by Robinson and some of the class were built by Beyer Peacock & Co. of Manchester in 1921. This image is the official Beyer Peacock works photograph of No. 34 - the locomotive being painted in grey for the purpose.
