No. 34071 601 Squadron – 1952

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 the ‘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.

No. 34071 601 Squadron was the first light pacific to be built with a wider 9’ cab and attached to 9’ wide 5,500 gallon tender. In December 1949 No. 34071 601 Squadron was transferred to Stewarts Lane shed and was used on the prestigious Golden Arrow service. It is portrayed in 1952 condition, fitted with Golden Arrow regalia.

Built: Brighton, April 1948

Named: 8th October 1948

Tender Cut-down: May 1960

Withdrawn: April 1967
