Manufacturer description
The SR Merchant Navy Class were a class of 4-6-2 Pacific steam locomotives designed for the Southern Railway by Oliver Bulleid. The class members were named after the Merchant Navy shipping lines involved in the Battle of the Atlantic, and latterly those which used Southampton Docks. Although the class were originally built with air-smoothed casing and chain-driven vale gear, the entire class were later modified under BR, resulting in a more conventional, easier to maintain design.
