    I have added a large collection of photos of T.W. Worsdell J71 (NER Class E) 0-6-0 T built 1886-1895

    The North Eastern Railway (NER) Class E, classified as Class J71 by the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER), was a class of small 0-6-0T steam locomotive designed by T.W. Worsdell. They had inside cylinders and Stephenson valve gear and were the basis for the later NER Class E1 (LNER Class J72). 81 locos passed into B.R. ownership

    The North Eastern Railway (NER) Class H, classified as Class Y7 by the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) is a class of 0-4-0T steam locomotives designed for shunting.
    Introduced in 1888 by Thomas W. Worsdell, six were built in 1888. Their simple, bare design easily navigated the tight curves and poor quality track which they ran on. The H proved so successful, that the NER ordered a further ten in 1891, three in 1897 and five more were ordered by the LNER in 1923.
    Coal was carried in side bunkers incorporated into the side tanks. The absence of a rear bunker and the small size of the cab provided the driver with a clear view of the buffer bar when reversing onto a train. The H shared their simple domeless boiler design with the H1 (J78) and H2 (J79) classes.
    The locos were originally fitted with dumb buffers, but these were changed for small round buffers during the 1930s, some also gaining vacuum brakes during this period; only hand and steam brakes were fitted when built.
    The LNER originally painted the Y7s in black with ¼inch vermillion lining; repaints after 1928 omitted this with locomotives in plain black.
    Two entered British Railways stock in 1948, becoming BR 68088 and 68089 (QUOTE WIKIPEDIA)

    I have added a new collection featuring Wilson Worsdell locomotives of the N.E.R./LNER
    This collection features LNER C6 (NER Classes V & V/09) 4-4-2 Atlantics
    The NER Class V was a class of twenty steam locomotives of the 4-4-2 wheel arrangement. They were designed by Wilson Worsdell for the North Eastern Railway (NER) as express passenger locomotives.
    The locomotives were built to haul express passenger trains on the East Coast Main Line between York and Edinburgh Waverley, with a change of locomotives at Newcastle. By the end of 1920, most of the class were allocated to the two main Newcastle-area depots, ten at Gateshead and eight at Heaton; but the remaining two were at York. By Grouping, three had been reallocated to Tweedmouth, and York had gained a further two, leaving seven at Gateshead and six at Heaton. The York engines were mainly used between York and Newcastle; those at Tweedmouth worked between Berwick and Newcastle; but the Gateshead and Heaton engines could be used between Newcastle and York, Newcastle and Leeds, or between Newcastle and Edinburgh.
    Withdrawal commenced with no. 532 in January 1943 later that year, the nineteen surviving locomotives were allotted new numbers 2930–48, but by the time the scheme was published, no. 649 (which had been allotted no. 2930) had also been withdrawn, so the new series as published was 2931–48. The actual renumbering did not commence until 1946, by which time several more had been withdrawn, and only seven were ultimately renumbered. Two, LNER nos. 2933 and 2937, remained in service at nationalisation, but both were withdrawn in March 1948 before the British Railways renumbering was prepared (Wikipedia)

    I have added a new collection featuring Wilson Worsdell locomotives of the N.E.R./LNER
    This collection features W. Worsdell C8 (NER Class 4CC) 4-4-2 Atlantics
    Just 2 locos in this class
    In November 1933, both C8s were moved to Heaton for use only on busy holiday traffic, although No. 731 would be withdrawn a month later. By the early 1930s, the superheated boilers reached the end of their economic lives. At a time of financial belt-tightening, the construction of two boilers of a non-standard design could not be justified at a time of financial belt-tightening, and the two C8s were withdrawn. No. 731 was scrapped in December 1933, and No. 730 was scrapped in January 1935.

    I have added a lot of new photos to the collection of W.Worsdell Class D20 (NER Class R) 4-4-0

    The NER Class R (later, LNER Class D20) was a class of 4-4-0 steam locomotive, designed by Wilson Worsdell for the North Eastern Railway. They passed to the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) in 1923. In 1936, some were rebuilt with long-travel piston valves and classified D20/2. The unrebuilt locomotives were re-classified D20/1.

    Forty-six D20/1 and three D20/2 locomotives passed to British Railways in 1948 and they were numbered 62340-62397 (with gaps).

    I have added a new collection featuring W.Worsdell Class D20 (NER Class R) 4-4-0
    The NER Class R1 (LNER Class D21) was a class of 4-4-0 steam locomotives of the North Eastern Railway. The class was designed by Wilson Worsdell and built from 1908 to 1909.
    The design was similar to that of the NER Class R (LNER Class D20) but a larger boiler was used. Boiler pressure was initially 225 psi (1.55 MPa).
    Boiler pressure was reduced to 180 psi (1.24 MPa) at an unknown date. Superheaters were fitted between 1912 and 1915 and, at the same time, boiler pressure was further reduced to 160 psi (1.1 MPa). It was standard NER practice to reduce boiler pressure when fitting a superheater. At some time before the 1923 Grouping, boiler pressure was increased to 175 psi (1.21 MPa).
    The R1s were initially used on the Glasgow-Newcastle and York-Newcastle services. However, as loads increased, they were replaced by more powerful locomotive types and relegated to secondary duties.
    They were withdrawn between 1942 and 1946

    Just 8 locos in this collection

    I have added a new collection featuring W.Worsdell J25 (NER Class P1) 0-6-0
    The NER Class P1 (LNER Class J25) was a class of 0-6-0 steam locomotives of the North Eastern Railway. Class P1 was a development of Class P, having a boiler four inches longer, and a firebox six inches longer. To accommodate these, the wheelbase was increased by nine inches. The cylinder stroke was also increased by two inches.
    A total of 120 was built at the North Eastern Railway's locomotive workshops at both Gateshead and Darlington, between 1898 and 1902, in six batches of 20. Their numbers were 1961-2000, 2031–80, 2126-42 with the remainder scattered between 25 and 1743.
    London and North Eastern Railway
    All passed to the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) in 1923, and their NER numbers were retained, but they were placed in LNER Class J25.
    World War II
    During World War II, 40 locomotives were loaned to the Great Western Railway (GWR). The first transfers to the GWR occurred in October 1939, and the last was not returned to the LNER until December 1946
    Renumbering
    The general LNER renumbering scheme was prepared in 1943, and at that time, 85 locomotives of the J25 class remained: these were allotted 5645-5729, being renumbered during 1946, apart from six which had been withdrawn in the interim.
    British Railways
    Seventy-six locomotives survived into British Railways (BR) ownership in 1948.
