Remarks & Notes 
Seldom photographed, because it is squeezed in a dark corner at the National Railway Museum at York, here is Bulleid Battle of Britain Class no. 34051 Winston Churchill. This member of the unconventional class of pacifics was named after the great man and actually pulled the great man's funeral train in 1965. It has not been restored in any way, other than a clean. You can see when you look in the cab that the loco is in the same condition that it was in when it was withdrawn.
