The Merchant Navy pacifics were designed by O.V.S. Bulleid to work the express passenger trains of the Southern Railway. The class originally had air-smoothed casing with chain driven valve gear enclosed in an oil bath. No. 35028 Clan Line was part of the third series built with larger 6,000 gallon tenders. The whole class was rebuilt in the late 1950s to a more conventional form.
On 23rd September 1961, while hauling the down Atlantic Coast Express, Clan Line attained 104 mph near Axminster. It is shown as running in 1965 after being re-united with a 6,000 gallon tender. On withdrawal it was purchased by the Merchant Navy Locomotive Preservation Society.
