Heritage & Preserved Steam Locomotive Engines
Bullied Pacific 34072 "257 Squadron" was built at Brighton Works in 1948 and allocated to Dover shed to mainly work the Continental Boat Trains from London to Dover e.g. the Night Ferry. 34072 also worked on local services between the Kent Coast and Charing Cross but after the electrification of the Kent coast lines in 1958 34072 257 Squadron was moved to Exmouth Junction locomotive depot in 1958, the Southern Region's main shed for the West Country and 34072 would have worked trains to Salisbury, Plymouth and to the Southern's other destinations in North Devon and North Cornwall.
The only photograph I have of 34072 is rather blurred and taken when she visited the North Yorkshire Moors Railway (year ?), here seen climbing up from Beckhole to Goathland with a Grosmont-Pickering train. (recovered from a 35 mm photograph)
Bullied SR 4-6-2 'Battle of Britain' Class Pacific design, 34072 257 SQUADRON is still in its original air smoothed casing, thermic syphons and Boxpox driving wheels.
