Big Four London and North Eastern Railway
Description (1957) Class L1, 100 engines built 1946-50, 2-cylinder 2-6-4T's with 5'2" wheels. The first four locomotives of the class were constructed in 1946 and at the close of 1947 as L.N.E.R. Nos. 9000-9003, followed at the beginning of 1948 by British Railways Nos. E9004-E9012 and 69013-69015. To avoid confusion with other classes, Nos. 69050, etc., it was then decided to renumber the class into the 67700 series, but oddly enough they became Nos. 67701-67716 instead of Nos. 67700-67715. The remainder of the class were built new as Nos. 67717-67800.
