Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The first London and North Eastern Railway Class A2 was a class of 4-6-2 steam locomotive designed by Vincent Raven. Two were built by the North Eastern Railway in 1922 before the grouping and another 3 by the LNER in 1924. Their LNER numbers were 2400-2404. All five locomotives were named by the LNER. Because of the great length of their parallel boilers, the Raven pacifics earned the nickname 'Skittle-alleys'. The Great Northern Railway's Class A1, which was a more technically advanced machine, was chosen as the LNER's standard express passenger locomotive so no more Raven A2s were built.show more
