42500 (LMS 2500 & BR 42500)


This was the first Stanier 2-6-4T engine to be built.

It was built at Derby, at a cost of £6,444, in 1934 for use on the London, Tilbury & Southend (LTS) section between Fenchurch Street and Shoeburyness. It was withdrawn from service in June 1962 and became part of the National Collection having spent its entire working life based at Shoeburyness.

In 2015 it was moved, on loan, from its long term home at the National Railway Museum at York to Barrow Hill Roundhouse but in 2016 it returned to York where it is currently on static display.
