Great Central Railway Class 8C, 4-6-0, No. 195

Great Central Railway Class 8C, 4-6-0, No. 195

Back to table of results
L3493. In an effort to try and determine the suitability of the 4-4-2 and 4-6-0 locomotive wheel arrangements, John G. Robinson had two of the latter type built to compete with the former which had by then gone into production. The resulting two locomotives were the Class 8C 4-6-0's, No's. 195 and 196. A more powerful version, known as the 8F, was later designed by Robinson and built by Beyer Peacock & Co. of Manchester in 1906. This image is the official Beyer Peacock works photograph of the original 8C, No. 195 - the locomotive being painted in grey for the purpose.
