Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The London and North Eastern Railway Class K1 is a type of 2-6-0 steam locomotive designed by Edward Thompson. Thompson preferred a simple two-cylinder design instead of Gresley's three cylinder one. The seventy K1s were intended to be split between the North Eastern Region of British Railways and the Eastern Region of British Railways. LNER Class K4 number 3445 MacCailin Mor was rebuilt in 1945 as a two cylinder prototype of the K1 class, designated K1/1. Thompson entrusted the rebuilding of No.3445 as a two cylinder Mogul to his principal assistant Arthur Peppercorn. This locomotive became British Railways no. 61997.
