Great Central Railway Class 9L, 4-4-2T, No. 1129

Great Central Railway Class 9L, 4-4-2T, No. 1129

Back to table of results
L3382. When Sir Sam Fay began to expand the services offered by the Great Central Railway, one of the areas he worked on was the suburban services. To improve the services, Fay requested that new locomotives be built, and the result was the Robinson designed 9K 4-4-2 tank engines of 1903. A larger version, known as the 9L, was designed by Robinson and built by Beyer Peacock & Co. of Manchester in 1907. This image is the official Beyer Peacock works photograph of No. 1129 - the locomotive being painted in grey for the purpose. No. 1129 eventually went to work suburban services on the Great Western & Great Central joint line.
