STANIER 8F 2-8-0s Part 3 The Book of the


Product Information


Latest in the longstanding ‘Book Of’ series, in FIVE PARTS to

adequately cover the vast number of locomotives involved.

In this third part are the locomotives that formed the first tranche

of the 8Fs as a British ‘War Locomotive’ built at various works to

Government edict. As the title indicates and as might be expected,

they were built by the LMS but the first Swindon examples also

began to emerge, from 8400 onwards.

Part One detailed those 8Fs built by/for the LMS for its own use –

8000-8125 in the 1930s with no thought then of them becoming a

British ‘war locomotive’ though indeed some did go abroad.

Part Two concerns firstly those engines built by Crewe and North

British for the LMS, 8126-8225 which never went abroad and

secondly the locos built at Ministry of Supply/War Department behest

and loaned to the LMS/GWR, 8226-8297
