RailRoad, LNER, P2 Class, 2-8-2, 2001 ‘Cock 'O The North’
Era 3
 
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 By 1944 the whole Class had been withdrawn.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’.
