Old Photograph Steam Train Lord James Of Douglas Eastfield Glasgow Scotland
Old photograph of the Class 11F steam train Lord James Of Douglas in Eastfield Glasgow, Scotland. Eastfield was a steam shed under British Railways with the depot code 65A. This steam locomotive designed by John G. Robinson for passenger work. Those built in 1924 by the LNER to a reduced loading gauge with smaller boiler mountings were built for hauling passenger trains in Scotland. The 11F Class was initially used on passenger work on the Great Central Railway system, including fast expresses from Sheffield Victoria to London Marylebone, England. Later in their careers, they were used on short distance passenger trains. On lines of the Cheshire Lines Committee during the late 1940s and early 1950s, they hauled expresses between Manchester Central and Liverpool Central; also semi fast trains from Manchester Central via Northwich to Chester Northgate.
