LNER/BR B17/4 4-6-0
The B17 4-6-0 was a three cylinder locomotive designed by Greasley for use on the Great Eastern section of the LNER. The kit used to build the RTR covers the last 25 engines (B17/4) which were fitted with the LNER 4200g Group Standard Tender. These were built by Darlington Works (14) in 1936 and by Robert Stephenson & Co. (11) in 1937. They were all named after football clubs and after twenty odd years in traffic the last one was scrapped in September 1960.
