YEAR INFORMATION
2004 'Winston Churchill' Battle Of Britain class 4-6-2 Pacific No.34051, designed by O.V.S. Bulleid and built in 1946, was officially named in a ceremony at Waterloo on 11 September 1947, by Marshall of the Royal Air Force, Lord Dowling. All Battle of Britain class locos carried names of distinction but 34051 'Winston Churchill' is perhaps one of the best remembered. Normally shedded at Salisbury for mixed traffic duties, it was brought to Nine Elms on 25 January 1965 in preparation for the State Funeral of Sir Winston Churchill. The locomotive, which had been named after the great man, was used to haul his funeral train from Waterloo to Handborough on 30 January 1965. 'Winston Churchill' was withdrawn from service on 19 September 1965 having covered 807,496 miles. Number 34051 is part of the National Collection at the National Railway Museum at York.
