English Electric Type 4 (later class 40)
English Electric had got a order under the British Railways Modernisation Plan of 1955 for a pilot match of 10 200 h.p locomotives the first of which was delivered in 1958. 190 more were ordered after successful trails of the first ten. These were all to be built at the the English Electric's Vulcan Foundry but because the Deltics were also being built at the same time, 20 of the order were built by Robert Stephenson & Hawthorn at Darlington
Class 40 145
Class 40145 was purchased and delivered to Bury at the East Lancashire Railway in February 1984. The Class 40 Preservation Society is a group of rail enthusiasts dedicated to preserving and operating working examples of English Electric Type 4s (later class 40) at the East Lancashire Railway.
Class 40145 is painted in BR blue with very large BR arrows and large numbers and all round yellow ends up to the doors.

Wansford Station is on part of the old A1 at Stibbingson and is about 2 miles from the village of Wansford itself. The line is about 7 1/2 miles long. It now has the Fletton Branch which is about another mile and a bit.
