The farewell run for the last of the 4-4-2 clas steam locomotives, No. 62822, from Kings Cros to Doncaster, 26 November 1950. The Great Northern Railway never owned a 4-6-0 but for 25 years, untill 1922, they relied on 4-4-2s. After superheating, these large locomotives were excelent machines and some lasted into British Railway days.
