Harry Pollitt was Locomotive Engineer of the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway from 1894-1897 and its successor, the Great Central Railway, from 1897-1900. Pollitt was born on 26 December 1864 at Ashton-under-Lyne. His father was Sir William Pollitt, who was general manager of the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway between 1866 and 1899. Harry Pollitt was appointed Locomotive Engineer of the MSLR from January 1894, replacing Thomas Parker, who resigned at the end of 1893.
