Product Info

LNER 4495 'Great Snipe', soon after renamed 'Golden Fleece' was delivered from Doncaster Works in 1937. After entering service 'Golden Fleece' was chosen to haul the 'West Riding Limited', effectively another 'Coronation' express but serving Newcastle and Bradford rather than Edinburgh. Under Thompson's 1946 numbering scheme the locomotive became No. 30, later becoming British Railways 60030 following nationalization. The locomotive was eventually withdrawn in 1962.
