Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The LNER Class Y10 was a class of 0-4-0 geared steam locomotives built by Sentinel Waggon Works for the London and North Eastern Railway and introduced in 1930. The LNER numbered them 8403 and 8404 but they were later re-numbered 8186 and 8187. They both passed into British Railways ownership in 1948 but 8187 was withdrawn almost immediately. Number 8186 was allocated the BR number 68186, but never actually carried it, and was withdrawn in 1952. The superheated vertical water-tube boiler and the engine were similar to those used in Sentinel steam wagons. Each locomotive had two 2-cylinder engines, giving a total of 200 horsepower. The engines had poppet valves and reversing was by sliding camshaft. The advantage of the water-tube boiler was that steam could be raised much more quickly than with a conventional fire-tube boiler.show more
