Great Central Railway Class 8F, 4-6-0, No. 1067

Great Central Railway Class 8F, 4-6-0, No. 1067

Back to the story
L3385. To improve the fledgling passenger services on the Great Central Railway, Sir Sam Fay requested that new fast passenger locomotives be built, and the result was the two John G. Robinson designed Class 8C 4-6-0's. A more powerful version, known as the 8F, was later designed by Robinson and built by Beyer Peacock & Co. of Manchester in 1906. This image is the official Beyer Peacock works photograph of No. 1067 - the locomotive being painted in grey for the purpose.
