H&BR 78 1910s Hull Springhead MPD

H&BR 78 1910s Hull Springhead MPD

Hull & Barnsley Railway M.Stirling 'B' (LNER 'J23') class 0-6-0 No. 78. Built by Yorkshire Engine Co. of Sheffield in December 1898 and withdrawn in September 1933 as LNER No. 3078.

The Hull & Barnsley Railway was a grand gesture to release the stranglehold on the area by the monopoly enjoyed by the North Eastern Railway. The company's HQ, works and principal shed was at Springhead in Hull where Matthew Stirling's 'B' class No.78 is seen in the 1910s.This particular 'B' was built at a cost of £2.635, a very significant sum in 1898! Matthew Stirling was the son of the GNR's Patrick Stirling and the family preference for domeless boilers was inherited!
