Watching a video of the magnificent Sir Nigel Gresley A4 pacific locomotive no 60007 in blue BR livery arriving at Leamington Spa on a nationwide tour in 2009.

The Sir Nigel Gresley locomotive is one of a class of A4 pacific locomotives designed by Sir Nigel Gresley on the London North Eastern Railway region from 1935 (one of the “Big Four”).

I have portrayed the locomotive with the LNER company “look” and numbered 4498.
35 were built.
Sir Nigel Gresley was knighted in 1936 and the loco bearing his name came into service in 1937 under the LNER company and numbered 4498 on the front and sides.
