LSWR 0-4-4T M7 Class no. 245 (BR no. 30245)

Photographed at the National Railway Museum, York, on 24 April 2007.
Designed by Dugald Drummond and built for the London & South Western Railway at the Nine Elms Locomotive Works in 1897. The cost was £1,846, and this locomotive stayed in service until 1962.
105 of these locomotives were built, and the class went through several modifications over five production batches. For this reason there were detail variations such as frame length. Many of the class were fitted with push-pull operation gear that enabled efficient use on branch line duties without the need to change to the other end of its train at the end of a journey.
Numbering: Works no. 501, LSWR 245, SR E245, SR 245, BR 30245
