Wasn't this loco also known as the 'Decameron'? Linuxlad 15:35, 28 Mar 2005 (UTC)

I haven't found any reference to this. However a loco with ten drivers was often referred to as a decapod. The Great Eastern Railway had one [1] Chevin 09:52, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

Help! - where has the stuff on the Woodhead Beyer Garret gone to now??Linuxlad 23:01, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

Information on the LNER Class U1 should be at LNER Class U1, and not here, oddly enough. I've got an official PD photo of it that I'll scan sometime. Dunc| 23:08, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

Wasn't it designed by Sir Henry Fowler?

I have seen three references, two give the desiger as Clayton, one to Fowler. Fowler was the Locomotive Engineer at the time, so I can only assume he delegated the work as he seems to have done for the S&DJR 7F 2-8-0 Chevin 09:52, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

I read somewhere that one of the Lickey banker's cylinder castings had been preserved. Any idea if it still exists or where it may be?

Valves[edit]

Railuk database states that she had slide valves but it is clear from photos that she had piston valves. Possibly she was built with slide valves and later rebuilt. Does anyone have further information? Biscuittin (talk) 16:42, 11 March 2008 (UTC)
