Doncaster Works

The rebuilt version of Gresley's infamous W1 no 10000, now renumbered 60700, stands at Doncaster works on what may have been its final visit, thought to be 24 May 1959. The locomotive, originally dubbed the Hush-Hush due to the number of experimental features incorporated, was the only 4-6-4 tender locomotive ever to run in Britain. After a problematic career the W1 was cut up here the following month.
