A portrait of 53809 at Grosmont Station on the NYMR

 

The magnificent and very powerful 53809 (seen leaving Grosmont with a freight train)  was originally built for the Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway (jointly owned by Midland LSWR Railways) in 1925 at Robert Stephenson & Company Newcastle, Tyne and Wear (RS 3895). LMS 9679 13809, S&DJR 89. Wheel arrangement 2-8-0 and classified as 7F heavy freight locomotive, though often hauled passenger trains e.g. I first saw it Bournemouth ~1960 on a train from Bath. Although designed as a heavy freight locomotive, it regularly hauled passenger trains on the Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway throughout their working life e.g. the PINES EXPRESS.
