Description

This design was prepared towards the end of the Second World War when it was apparent that steel would not be readily available. Some Gresley brakes built in 1943 had even been reduced to having hardboard body panels. Like all full brakes they could be seen not only in their own region but throughout the system on passenger and parcels trains. Some were converted to exhibition train use, and two ended up in Los Angeles after forming part of the Flying Scotsman US tour train.
