Great Central Railway Class 8B, 4-4-2 'Atlantic', No. 266.

L3492. Great Central Railway, 8B class 4-4-2 'Atlantic' type locomotive, No. 266. It was designed by GCR Chief Mechanical Engineer John G. Robinson in 1903 and was one of a batch built for the company by Beyer Peacock & Co. of Manchester. For the photograph, the locomotive was painted in a modified version of the Great Central's passenger livery, with grey (better for photography) replacing the usual green with vermilion wheel splashers and frames. These handsome locomotives were affectionately known as 'Jersey Lilies' after Lily Langtry.
