Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. BR Battle of Britain class 34073 249 Squadron is one of around 20 surviving Bulleid light pacifics. Built in May 1948 as a British Railways-built example of a Southern Railway design, and named after the RAF's 249 Squadron, it remained in service until June 1964. After withdrawal, it was moved to Woodham Brothers scrapyard, Barry, for scrapping. It remained there until February 1988 when it was moved to Brighton. The locomotive was stored at Ropley on the Mid Hants Railway for a number of years, while awaiting a decision about its restoration. Some time around May 2006 the locomotive left the Mid Hants in order to donate parts of its valve gear to sister engine 34067 Tangmere.show more
