Legends of Steam

Legends of Steam

Three days, three legendary locomotives.

Celebrate the crowning glory of British industry, personified by these three incredible and iconic mainline steam locomotives.

This special springtime steam event will feature guest locomotives from the mainline:

  • BR Standard, Class 7, 70000 ‘Britannia’ – Built in Crewe Works for British Railways in 1951, this engine was the first British Railways standard locomotive to be built and the first of 55 locomotives of the Britannia class.
  • LNER, A4, 60007 ‘Sir Nigel Gresley’ – This engine emerged from Doncaster Works of the London and North Eastern Railway in early 1936 and bears the distinction of being the 100th locomotive built to the designs of the LNER’s Chief Mechanical Engineer, Sir Nigel Gresley.
  • LMS, Jubilee Class, 45690 ‘Leander’ – Built the same year as 60007 at Crewe, Leander was named for a Navy Ship which was in turn named after a hero of ancient Greek mythology. It originally started life under the number 5690, but was renumbered 45690 when the railways were nationalised.

These locomotives will be running an intensive public timetable for the whole three days. They will feature alongside members of the ELR home fleet.

More information will be released on this event as it draws nearer so watch this space.
