The Q6 0-8-0  was one of the very few pre-grouping steam locomotives to survive all most to the end of steam on British Railways.
 
This locomotive Q6 no.63395 was purchased by North Eastern Locomotive Preservation Group who also own J27 no. 65894.
 
The Q6's were a freight engine used to pull trains up the step gradients in the North East of England, with heavy coal coke or ore trains. The 9F taking over some of Q6's trains towards the very end of steam.
 
The North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR) is today with its heavy and full passenger trains up its step gradients, is ideal for a Q6 to show what it can do.

This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk  it is a web site on railways, but it is not just on the 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,  any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was BR when I started taken photos or heritage railways like the North Yorkshire Moors Railway on this page.

 

Today EWS, East Coast, Central trains and EWS are just some of the names you can see on the trains. These names keep changing, but that means I have to keep taking photos. I also take photos of preserved railways  like the North Yorkshire Moors Railway with steam diesel and electric trains.There is still lots more to add and I keep taking more photos.
