Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The London and North Western Railway (LNWR) Prince of Wales Tank Class was a pacific tank engine version of the Prince of Wales Class 4-6-0 steam locomotive. Bowen-Cooke's predecessor Whale had built 50 related Precursor Tank Class 4-4-2 engines. In terms of familial relationships, Prince of Wales Tank was both a superheated and extended version of the Precursor Tank, and a version of the Prince of Wales Class 4-6-0 steam locomotive with side tanks and a bunker which necessitated an extension to the frames and trailing pony truck. They were mostly used on suburban services out of Euston station. The LNWR built 47 of the superheated tanks between 1910 and 1916 under Charles Bowen-Cooke.show more
