NYMR Autumn Steam Gala 2012: Inside the cab of 69621. 69621 is from the East Anglian Railway Museum and was rebuilt in 1989 at Chappel Works. (North Yorkshire Moors Railway). 69621 derives from the Great Eastern Railway and was the GER's  equivalent of the N2 designed for working out of London's Liverpool Street Station on commuter trains. They were so successful at hauling commuter services that the LNER built many more of them at Doncaster Works and Gorton works in Manchester. 69621 worked on commuter trains until the GE lines were electrified and luckily was the only one of its class to survive into a heritage railway or museum. Locomotive 69621 is normally kept at the Churnet Valley Railway and is owned by the East Anglian Railway Museum.
