Ex-LNER V2 class locomotive,  GREEN ARROW, on shed at Loughborough.

L3251. The National Railway Museum's flagship locomotive - pioneer V2 class 2-6-2, No. 60800 GREEN ARROW - stands outside Loughborough shed in the summer of 2002. Locomotives of this type were regular performers on the London Extension during the 1940's and 1950's and were a great favourite amongst the locomotive crews. They were powerful and reliable machines, and their 6' 2' driving wheels allowed for very fast starts, which were preferred on the Great Central.
