Locomotives at the Grouping: No 2 - London & North Eastern Railway
Edited by H. C. Casserley and S. W. Johnston, this is the second of four volumes describing the locomotives inherited by the Group Companies in 1923, and lists locomotives taken over by the new London & North Eastern Railway in 1923, from the North Eastern, Great Northern, Great Central, Great Eastern, North British, and Great North of Scotland Railways and a few other small companies. There are details of all the main dimensions of each class.
Historical notes and tabulated lists of the engine numbers arc given of locomotives actually in service on January I, 1923, or those already on order which would appear later in the year. Locomotives built subsequently by the London & North Eastern Railway during its 25 year reign are not included.
In the 24 pages of illustrations, which contain a selection of the many locomotive types inherited and a great number of pictures of the older classes which disappeared in earlier years, the changes in numbering and livery adopted by the L.N.E.R. before Nationalisation in 1948 can be seen.
Hardback with dust jacket, 128 pages, black & white photographs
