| Description

The London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) Edinburgh to Aberdeen route had steep gradients and tight curves and the express passenger service was usually worked by a double header of two small engines. To overcome this situation, Nigel Gresley, Chief Mechanical Engineer (CME) of the LNER began designing a new locomotive at the LNER Doncaster Works in 1932. The 2-8-2 configured locomotive was given the classification P2 and had four driving axles for greater adhesion, an A3 type boiler and a Kylchap type blastpipe/chimney system.

A total of six of the Class were built. As the first two were returned to Doncaster for repairs they were fitted with streamlined fronts similar to the A4 Pacifics. The last four to be built were outshopped with streamlined fronts. By 1944 the whole Class had been withdrawn.

The 'A1 Trust', builders of the A1 locomotive 'Tornado', are planning to build a Class P2 locomotive as it was originally outshopped from the LNER and have accordingly formed the ‘P2 Steam Locomotive Company’.

The mighty P2

I have two of these locos, while none are the RailRoad version the chassis is exactly the same. I am really pleased with both, they look amazing, have great pulling power a must to own in my view in any version. They are also surprisingly good around a tight bend I have in my fiddle yard.

About the Cock O' The North

I keep on finding that the front 2 wheel of the Loco keep being "de-railed" whilst test rest of the wheels & loco stay on the track!!!

Many thanks for your review. Problems with derailing can often be addressed at home, especially if the cause can be traced to the track the locomotive is running on. For advice on getting the issue fixed please contact our Customer Services team or, alternatively, you can always ask on our Forum.

My family has just bought this set for me. Great detail and excellent running. Very smooth at slow speeds. Will be converting to DCC once the new layout is built
