LNER Steam Action Dvd: 2009-2013




The London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) was the second largest of the ‘Big Four’ railway companies created by the Railways Act 1921 in Britain.

It existed from 1st January 1923 until nationalisation on 1st January 1948, when it was divided into the new British Railways’ Eastern Region, North Eastern Region and partially the Scottish Region.

The LNER was famous for its prestigious high speed trains, but gained a lot of its income from the coal fields of North East England.

Routes varied from the flat agricultural land of East Anglia, to the severe curves and gradients of Scotland and the Pennines.

The route mileage was 6,590 miles and the LNER owned 7,700 locomotives, 20,000 coaching vehicles and 29,700 freight vehicles.

The LNER used a number of liveries on its trains. Most common were lined apple green on its passenger locomotives and unlined black on freight locomotives, both with gold lettering. Passenger carriages were generally varnished teak (wood) finish; the few metal-panelled coaches were painted to represent teak. Some special trains and A4 Pacific locomotives were painted differently, including silver-grey and garter blue.
