No. 2001 Cock o’ the North – 1934

The P2’s were designed by H.N. Gresley to eliminate the double heading of express passenger services over the heavy gradients of the Edinburgh to Aberdeen main line. Cock o’ the North was built with Lentz rotary cam poppet valves, ACFI feedwater heater and double Kylchap blastpipe and chimney. During testing No. 2001 sustained 1,910hp for 35 minutes
at 68mph.

However it was decided to fit Cock o’ the North with standard piston valves, operated by Gresley’s conjugated Walschaerts motion. When E. Thompson became CME it was rebuilt as an A2/2 pacific. No. 2001 is shown in the condition it entered traffic.

Built: Doncaster, May 1934

Valve Gear Converted: April 1938

Rebuilt as A2/2: September 1944

Withdrawn: February 1960
