Preserved Great Western Railway Pannier Tank 5700 Class steam locomotive number 5775 inside The Great Hall at the National Railway Museum in York (UK).
5775 was designed and built by Chief Mechanical Engineer of the Great Western Railway Charles Collett at Swindon Works and entered service on September 30th 1929.
5575 was sold to London Transport in 1958 and renumbered L89. L89 was finally withdrawn in January 1970 and was immediately preserved with the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway.
5575 was the featured steam locomotive in the 1971 movie ‘The Railway Children’ in the fictitious caramel Great North and South Railway livery as seen here.
