Artist's Description

The Stanier 8F Locomotive No 8624 in the Engine Shed at Loughborough Station on the preverved Great Central Railway.

The London Midland and Scottish Railway’s 8F class 2-8-0 heavy freight locomotive is a class of steam locomotive designed for hauling heavy freight. 852 were built between 1935 and 1946 (not all to LMS order), as a freight version of William Stanier’s successful Black Five, and the class saw service overseas during the Second World War.

On the outbreak of the Second World War, the design was chosen to become the country’s standard freight design, reprising the role the GCR 8K Class had in the First World War.
