The steam locomotive is one of the most impressive achievements of British civil engineering, and conjures up nostalgia and interest across generations. This illustrated talk focuses on one particular type of locomotive, the 4-6-2 ‘Pacific’, often used as motive power for the most prestigious express passenger services. We’ll look at Pacifics in the ‘Big Four’ railway companies, in British Railways, and on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch railway.
