Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Great Central Railway Class 9F was a class of 0-6-2Tsteam locomotive built between 1891 and 1901. From 1923 the locomotives were redesignated Class N5. Designed by Thomas Parker for the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway, the prototype 9F was built in 1891. A total of 12 batches were constructed up to 1901, with 131 locos being completed. The MSLR changed its name to the GCR in 1897. The GCR 9F locos were reclassifed as N5 under the LNER locomotive numbering and classification system when the GCR was absorbed into the London & North Eastern Railway after the 1923 grouping. It was the first design for a British railway to use the Belpaire firebox.show more
