1057 1930s Newport

1057 1930s Newport

Ex-North Eastern Railway Worsdell 'P2' (LNER 'J26') class 0-6-0 No. 1057. Built at Darlington in Oct. 1904 as NER No. 1057 and withdrawn in Oct. 1961 as BR No. 65741. The Worsdell 'J26' and 'J27' class 0-6-0s were true workhorses of the North Eastern Railway and its successors for well over half a century. Along with the Raven 'Q6' 0-8-0s they were also some of the last pre-grouping designs to survive. 1057 is at Newport, Yorkshire and has an ex-North Eastern Railway ballast brake in tow which would be in faded departmental blue livery. The locomotive's cab has a tarpaulin sheet to protect the crew from inclement weather. There was plenty of THAT in the north-east!
