Great Central Railway Class 9J, 0-6-0, No. 228.

Great Central Railway Class 9J, 0-6-0, No. 228.

L3495. John G. Robinson's first design for the Great Central Railway was his 9J goods engine, which first appeared in 1901. The new locomotives were built to a 0-6-0 wheel arrangement and were, at the time, considered to be very modern in appearance. In service, the 9J's quickly earned the nickname 'Pom-Poms' because the bark of their exhaust resembled the sound made by a quick-firing gun of that name. A number of this successful class were built by Beyer Peacock & Co. of Manchester, and this image is the official Beyer Peacock works photograph of Class 9J, No. 228 - the locomotive being painted in grey for the purpose of photography.
