No. 34064 Fighter Command – 1962

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. 21C164 Fighter Command was the 1,000th locomotive built at Brighton Works. Renumbered 34064 by British Railways it was fitted with a Giesl oblong ejector in 1962 to improve the draughting when fitted with a spark arrester, which it did successfully. Fighter Command is portrayed as running after the fitting of the ejector.

Built: Brighton, April 1948

Named: 8th October 1948

Giesl Ejector: April 1962

Withdrawn: April 1967
