Old Photograph LNER Class V2 SteamTrain Railway Station Haymarket Edinburgh Scotland

Old photograph of the London and North Eastern Railway Class V2 60813 steam train in the railway station at Haymarket in Edinburgh, Scotland. The V2 was a versatile locomotive, capable of hauling fast fitted freights and express passenger trains. The V2s performed equally competently for British Railways, leaving their mark on the East Coast Main Line, the Waverley Route between Carlisle and Edinburgh and on the ex Great Central main line between London Marylebone and Sheffield. The V2s' swansong came on the Edinburgh to Aberdeen run, working alongside the last LNER A2s and A4s. The entire class was withdrawn from service between 1962 and 1966.
