Designed by R. A. Riddles and introduced in 1951 the Britannia Class was the first British Railways standard design to appear. A total of 55 of the Class were all built at Crewe works with the final engine entering traffic in 1954. With just two outside cylinders it was a practical design built for ease of maintenance.
In spite of this the locomotive was a handsome and well proportioned design.. A real favourite among railway enthusiasts. With its 74" driving wheels it was an archetypal passenger express and looks at home, at speed, at the head of a long rake of Mk 1 coaches. Allocated to all regions the locomotives remained in service to the very end of the British steam era with 70013 Oliver Cromwell hauling the final scheduled passenger service in 1968.
