6000 King George V was the first KING class locomotive and shortly after completion in June 1927 it was shipped to America to take part in the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad centenary celebrations. There the engine was presented with a bell and plaques to commemorate its contribution and these are still carried by the locomotive today. When King George V returned to Britain it was known as 'The Bell' until its withdrawal and fortunately NOT scrapped like so many of its contemporaries!

 

6000 has a bell on the front.
