Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. London Midland and Scottish Railway Jubilee Class No. 5690 Leander is a preserved British steam locomotive. 5690 was built at Crewe in March 1936 and named Leander after HMS Leander, which in turn was named after the Greek hero Leander. After nationalisation in 1948, she was renumbered 45690 by British Railways, and based at the former LMS engine shed at Bristol Barrow Road. After being withdrawn in 1964, Leander was sold to Woodham Brothers scrapyard in Barry, South Wales. Rescued by Brian Oliver in May 1972, she was restored by the Leander Locomotive Society at the Dinting Railway Museum, Glossop. After later purchase by and running on the Severn Valley Railway, she was sold to Dr Peter Beet, and restored to running condition on the East Lancashire Railway.show more
