Bespoke Severn Valley Railway Sweatshirt celebrating our Home Fleet Hero's
Display your love for a star of our home fleet, BR Standard 4MT 4-6-0 with a Sweatshirt featuring the locomotive itself.
75069 was one of the final batch allocated to the BR Southern Region which were built with a larger tender. This gives greater coal and water capacity, but restricting the weight and route restrictions to that of the Standard Class 5.
75069 was built in 1955 at BR’s Swindon works and entered traffic at Dover. It was fitted with a double chimney at Eastleigh in 1960, returning to traffic at Stewart's Lane. Being a Southern engine 75069 is paired with a BR1B tender. This weighs approximately 49 tons (49.94 t), carrying 4,250 gallons of water and approximately 7 tons of coal.
After just 11 years in service around London and the South Coast, the locomotive was withdrawn from service at Eastleigh in September 1966.
