Picton Whiske Sheds, has another loco to add to the fleet, the Thompson B1 4-6-0 Mixed Traffic locomotive. They were built in the final years on the LNER and were numerous over the Easter and North Eastern Regions of British Railways. It is said that they were a better engine than Stanier's Black 5s!!!
Spingbok was the first of the class, and she will have plenty to do helping with goods and the smaller passenger services on North Eastern Region.
