L&YR Tank
Brief History
The Lancashire & and Yorkshire Railway Class 5 was a class of steam engine designed by Sir John Aspinsall. No. 1008 was the first locomotive to be completed at the company’s works in Horwich near Bolton and is the only British standard gauge 2-4-2 tank engine preserved.

Between 1889 and 1911, 330 locomotive of this design were produced by the L&YR for use with passenger trains over steeply graded tracks. The locomotive were fitted with a special type of water scoop (unusual in a tank engine),which operated in both directions and allowed them to pick up water from water troughs between the lines without stopping. The design was progressively enlarged throughout the construction period on the same 24ft 4ins total wheelbase to give the engines greater fuel and water capacity.
