Named in 2011 as ‘Cock O’ The North’ by the current owners, 92214 is now fully operational at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Between 2006 and 2008, 92214 was at the East Lancashire Railway on loan. The locomotive was bought by the 92214 Locomotive Group (based at the Midland Railway Centre) and was fully restored to working order. The name had previously been carried by three locomotives on the former London and North Eastern Railway (LNER), of classes P2 it’s rebuilt form as A2/2, and C11
The name was suggested by Valerie Walter, the Company Secretary of the company owning the locomotive (PV Premier Limited), whose grandfather served with the Gordon Highlanders during the First World War (Cock o’ the North being the traditional epithet attached to the Chief of the Gordon Clan of Scotland), with no prior knowledge of the name having previously been used by the LNER for some of their locomotives.
