Manufacturer description
The A2/3 Class were designed by Edward Thompson as standard express passenger locomotives. After Sir Nigel Gresley's unexpected death in April 1941, Edward Thompson desired to standardise the locomotives of the LNER. This process involved rebuilding locomotives using standard components such as wheel sizes and boiler designs.
