A4 number (BR number) 60007 is named after Sir Nigel Gresley who was the  Chief Mechanical Engineer of the LNER and the designer of the A4s.
 
This locomotive was the 100th Gresley Pacific to be built by the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) so they honored him by naming the locomotive after him.
 
The A4 is in British Railways blue with its British Railways number. It still runs on the Main line but it's home base is now (2010) and for the last few years it has been based on The North Yorkshire Moors Railway
 
The A4 Preservation Society saved this A4 in 1966  and it still owns it.
 
The A4 Preservation Society changed its name to The A4 Locomotive Society Ltd and now to The Sir Nigel Gresley Locomotive Preservation Trust Ltd. But wha does a name matter? They saved the engine and that's all that matters, well done.

 This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk it is on railways but it is not just on trains but all things railways, with photos, which I have taken from the 1970s till now. I take photos of all things railways, steam diesel and electric trains, signal boxes, wagons any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was BR when I started taken photos.

This page is about the Barrow hill engine shed

Today Virgin East Coast, Grand Central and DRS are just some of the names on the trains. These names keep changing, but that means I have to keep taking photos. I also take photos of preserved railways with steam diesel and electric trains.There is lots more to add and I keep taking More!
