BR 9F 92220 Evening Star at York
At the NRM's 1968 and all that exhibition BR 9F 92220 Evening Star is at York.
Built in 1960 92220 is a prime example of the waste surrounding BR's race to replace steam with diesel in the 1960's. She was retired in 1965. Due her first major overhaul and as she had suffered minor accident damage BR decided that she should be scrapped but because she was the last mainline steam locomotive to be built she was saved.
