Old Photograph LNER Class J39 Steam Train Eastfield Glasgow Scotland

Old photograph of a London and North Eastern Railway Class J39 64950 steam train in Eastfield Glasgow, Scotland. Class J39 was a class of medium powered 0-6-0 steam locomotive designed for mixed traffic work throughout the former LNER system between London and the north of Scotland. The class was introduced by Nigel Gresley in July 1926, based on his previous Class J38, introduced in January 1926, but with larger driving wheels. All passed into British Railways ownership in 1948. They began to be withdrawn from service in 1959 and all examples had been scrapped by the end of 1962.
