Old Photograph LNER Class K2 Steam Train Eastfield Glasgow Scotland

Old photograph of an LNER Class K2 steam train in Eastfield Glasgow, Scotland. The heavy gradients of the West Highland Railway Line demanded powerful locomotives and Nigel Gresley designed firstly a very successful 2 cylinder 2-6-0 loco, classified by the LNER as a K2, then later an even more powerful 3 cylinder version for the purpose. Eastfield was a steam shed under British Railways with the depot code 65A.
