A Brief History

In 1926 Sir Nigel Gresley was asked to design a more powerful locomotive for services in East Anglia, for although we all think of East Anglia as flat, some very severe banks occur, particularly on the section between Norwich and Ipswich. One of the workings the class took over was the "North Country Continental" to which a B17 was diagrammed to undertake the whole of the 215 mile journey from Ipswich to Manchester via the old Woodhead Tunnel. It was what was called a lodging turn, but you could bet the fireman was too exhausted to enjoy a good night out in Manchester!
