BR Class 4MT 2-6-4T tank engine
Heritage & Preserved Steam Locomotive Engines
Standard tank engine 80072 (at Grosmont on the NYMR) was built at Brighton Works in 1952 to a design by R. A. Riddles. 80072 worked on the Southern Region on Bournemouth to Brighton and Plymouth to Brighton services. Later 80072, with others of her class, were sent to Tilbury on the Eastern Region. Here 80072 only worked as a passenger engine, working heavy commuter trains in and out of London's Fenchurch Station. This was followed by work on the Western Region of British Railways based from Swansea East Dock locomotive depot. Lastly, before being rescued from the scrapyard, 80072 worked out of Shrewsbury, Carmarthen and Leamington Spa.
