Southern Railway 4-6-2 No. 34051 'Winston Churchill'Posted by: Steve Frost on 2007-11-26 12:05:31.96
Re the previous note:

The loco is a member of the 'Battle of Britain' class which was named after people, places and RAF squadrons involved in the air defence of the UK in the Second World War. It is one of the locos that retained their original form with the 'air smoothed' casing and the chain driven miniature Walschaerts valve gear, rather than being in rebuilt form. This loco took the name of Winston Churchill, Britain's wartime Prime Minister. It was named well before Churchill's death, although it is true to say that it did haul the funeral train conveying his body for burial.

Incidentally, the Southern Railway bogie van in which his remains were transported has recently been returned to the UK from the USA. (For those fixated on numbers the van is S2464S) Currently the van is located at the East Somerset Railway for eventual restoration.
