Legendary Train Hauled Into Workshop
Built for the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) in 1937, it was the 100th Gresley Pacific produced at the Doncaster Railway Works, commonly referred to, in England, as “the Plant”.
This magnificent Pacific class 4-6-2 locomotive is owned by the Sir Nigel Gresley Trust. (4-6-2 stands for four leading wheels, six driving wheels and two trailing wheels.)
It will be three years before the refit is completed; only then will the fire box be relit to steam up this iconic engine again.
overhaul: to examine and repair something.
