Description

Photographed at the National Railway Museum, York, on 18 March 2017. LNER Class C2 signifies the small boiler version of this Henry Ivatt design, with the larger boiler LNER Class C1 coming later. Altogether 22 of these locomotives were built at Doncaster Works between 1898 and 1903. They were commonly known as “Klondykes” after the 1897 Klondyke gold rush in the USA.
Henry Oakley was the general manager of the Great Northern Railway.
