Prototype Era
Era 4 (1948 to 1956) British Railways Early Crest

Manufacturer description
Inspired by Thompson's rebuilt Gresley K4 in which it was reclassified as a K1/1, the only locomotive in that particular Class, A. H. Peppercorn took advantage of Thompson's retirement in 1946 to develop the design into the K1 Class. The K1 Class, which was made up of 70 locomotives, were all built in Glasgow at the North British Locomotive Company's Park Works over a 10 month period between May 1949 and March 1950. As was the North British Locomotive Company's all of the Class were sent to Eastfield shed, Glasgow for running in before being sent to England where they were used for both freight and express passenger workings.
