Frank Chamberlain aboard his V2 engine

Frank Chamberlain aboard his V2 engine

Back to the story
L3543. The photograph shows the engine driver, Frank (Tom) Chamberlain, and his fireman (name unknown) standing on the footplate of a V2 engine. Being powerful and reliable engines, these locomotives were great favorites of the Great Central locomotive crews and could often be seen on the London Extension during the 1940's and 1950's. Tom Chamberlain worked extensively on the GCR and LNER, progressing from cleaner to being a regular driver of the Flying Scotsman, quite a career.
