The B17 locomotives were a class of LNER 4-6-0 locomotives designed by Sir Nigel Gresley for passenger haulage on the Great Eastern Line. They first came into operation in 1928. In all 73 were built and continued into service until the early 1960s. During their lifetime there were many amendments and upgrades to the class including a streamlined version. Unfortunately, no examples have survived into preservation, however there are currently “new builds” underway to bring the class back from extinction.
