LNWR Class G2 7F 0-8-0 freight engine
Heritage & Preserved Steam Locomotive Engines
A photograph taken in the 1920s of a LNWR 0-8-0 freight locomotive hauling a mineral train, passing Kensington Addison Road station and further entitled on the West London Railway, but Addison Road was on the London and South Western Railway, but the LNWR did operate services into Addison Road
I don't know if the locomotive is an example of class of heavy freight locomotives it may be a Beames development of a 1912 Bowen-Cooke LNWR design or the original?
The photograph was kindly sent to me by Christopher J Waller, taken by his grandfather Edward J Waller in the 1920s.
For comparison, a photograph ~1961 of an LNWR derived 0-8-0 freight locomotive 49416 (built Crewe 1921, cut up in 1962) at Edge Hill depot, Liverpool in the 1960s. You can clearly see the similarity of the locomotive with the 1920s photograph.
49395 is an ancient survivor of class of heavy freight locomotives as a Beames development of a 1912 Bowen-Cooke LNWR design. Above, 49395 on shunting duties at Grosmont Station. Ex LNWR Class G2 freight 0-8-0 485, LMS 9395 (LNWR 485), BR 49395 is the sole survivor, built at Crewe Locomotive Works in 1921.
