Product Description

PREVIOUS IMAGE USED - WILL BE UPDATED CLOSER TO RELEASE

The BR Standard Class 9F was designed by Robert Riddles as a heavy freight locomotive being able to run at speed over a long range. In total, 251 9Fs were built at Crewe or Swindon between 1954 and 1960. The final steam locomotive ever to be built by BR was a 9F and was named as 'Evening Star' and liveried in Brunswick Green, a colour usually reserved for express passenger locomotives. The 9F was considered very successful and was utilised in some areas of the country to haul passenger services, where its exceptional power and range offered considerable advantages.

Over its relatively short life, attempts were made to improve the design of the 9F; for example, the inclusion of the Franco-Crosti boiler and water pre-heater. However, in the main, these developments were not considered to be successful, with the only exception being the addition of the double blast pipe and chimney which became standard from locomotives built after 1957 and was retrofitted to a handful of previously built 9Fs.

Several 9Fs survive into preservation, including Evening Star in the NRM at York.
