No. 34004 Yeovil – 1948

O.V.S. Bulleid designed the Light Pacifics to work over the restricted secondary routes of the Southern Railway, but with as much power as possible. In 1948 the newly formed British Railways held trials between the former railway company’s locomotives.

No. 34004 Yeovil was chosen to work over the Highland main line between Perth and Inverness, with a LMS 4,000 gallon tender to provide water pick-up. Over this difficult route Driver Jack Swain and Fireman Bert Hooker provided one of the stand-out performances of the trials. The illustration shows No. 34004 Yeovil after its return to the Southern Region and being re-united with a SR 4,500 gallon tender.
