No. 34072 257 Squadron – As Preserved

The light pacifics were designed by O.V.S. Bulleid to work over the restricted secondary routes of the Southern Railway. Two naming themes were used; ‘West Country’ and ‘Battle of Britain’. The ‘Battle of Britain’ locomotives were named in tribute to the personalities, aircraft, RAF stations and squadrons involved in the 1940 air battle.

257 Squadron was the second locomotive to have the wider 9ft cab and 5,500 gallon tender. The locomotive is owned by Southern Locomotives Ltd and is shown as running in preservation; attached to a cut-down 5,500 gallon tender. 257 (Burma) Squadron was equipped with Hawker Hurricanes during the Battle of Britain.
