L N E R 4-6-0 Tender Mixed Traffic Locomotives covers the design, construction, operation and performance of all 4-6-0 locomotives that ran on the London & North Eastern Railway between 1923 and 1947 and the LNER designed engines that ran on BR’s Eastern Region until the end of BR steam in 1968. This includes the former Great Central 4-6-0s of classes B1 – B9 (the B1 and B2 later reclassified B18 & B19); the North Eastern Railway B13 – B16s; the Great Eastern B12s; and the LNER B17s, the Thompson B1s and rebuilds (B2 and B3/3). The book has over 60,000 words and 400 black and white and coloured photographs, many previously unpublished from the archives of the Manchester Locomotive Society at Stockport. It will be of particular interest to railway modellers and enthusiasts of locomotive running and performance as well as those seeking more general locomotive history. The book is designed and written in the same style as David Maidment’s previous Locomotive Portfolio books on engines of the Great Western and Southern Railways, and includes where possible his own experiences, seeing and travelling behind engines of these classes in the 1950s and early 1960s, especially the B1s, B12s and B17 ‘Sandringhams’.

Another thoroughly competent book.

Steam World, June 2021

"Another very fine book."

West Somerset Railway Association

As with other books from the Locomotive Portfolio series, this book by David Maidment comes highly recommended. A worthwhile addition to the series, and a great book in its own right if you have an interest in steam locomotives.

Rail Advent

In summary, whether as a ‘coffee table’ book or as a research document this is worth the investment. The photographs are consistently good and well presented, with good contrast in the printing that allows you to pick up on details and it is an excellent source of information for modellers and model engineers interested in these engines. Every class of LNER 4-6-0 is covered so whatever your favourite, there’s bound to be something of interest. Many of the photographs (from the Manchester Locomotive Society) are seen in print for the first time and, as a bonus, often show interesting rolling stock and locations.
