Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. LMS Stanier Class 8F No. 8233, War Department Nos. 307, and later 70307, Iranian State Railways No. 41-109, British Railways No. 48773, is a preserved British steam locomotive. Its owners claim that it is " possibly Britain's most travelled preserved locomotive." 8233 was originally built in 1940 by the North British Locomotive Company of Glasgow, Works No. 24607 on the orders of the War Department, which had adopted the LMS Stanier Class 8F as its own standard. However, the Fall of France saw that it was not sent to mainland Europe with the British Expeditionary Force, as originally intended. Instead, it became LMS No. 8233 and was based out of Toton, Holbeck and Westhouses sheds.show more
