Surely this has to be at the turn of the Century. I was an avid train spotter in my younger days but I don't ever remember an engine anything like this. 25 dec 2009

This looks like a visitor to the region, it has all the characteristics of a Great Western loco, cast number plate, sole bar number and double chimney.

This is a member of the North Eastern Railway's 398 Class. From the large front sandbox, it looks like No 821, built by Robert Stephenson & Co in 1873. It was scrapped circa 1912.

Contrary to Graham's comments I firmly believe that this is a North Eastern Railway Locomotive,possibly a class 398 0-6-0 Freight Loco.designed by Fletcher. Until grouping in 1923 most, if not all, NER locos carried cast number plates. While the Loco may have been rebuilt a lttle by Worsdell, the tender could well be original. Finally this photo apparently predates 1923 and I do not think that double chimneys appeared on any British Steam Locos until the late 1930s at the earliest and never even then on humble 0-6-0s
