FR K2 Class Mixed-traffic Engine


FR K2 Class Mixed-traffic Engine

After being introduced to the world in March, 1912 by Sir Nigel Gresley, the K2 Class became a hit sensation of the British railways after replacing its former K1 Class. Reaching speeds of 40m/h (64.3738km/h), it proved useful as both a passenger and goods train. By 1962, K2 became extinct from its last surviving locomotive, No. 61756, being withdrawn from the railway.

The LEGO model I have made here is to commemorate the 50 years of service the K2 Class locomotive gave to the British Railway.

The similarities to Edward from Thomas the Tank Engine are because the design is based off the K2 Class locomotive he was inspired by.
