This picture shows an example of the Great Northern Railway’s celebrated No.1 Class of express steam locomotives, designed in 1870 by the GNR’s Locomotive Superintendent, Richard Stirling, and subsequently called Stirling Singles on account of the large, single driving wheel on each side. An identical engine can be seen today at the National Railway Museum in York.
