Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 1074 (Locobase 7570)

Data from 1946 Beyer, Peacock catalogue hosted on Martyn Bane's website at [] (accessed 21 May 2006).

Batch #058 (works#5358-5369) (Production data from The Beyer, Peacock production list -- [], last accessed 29 May 2006).

This was a relatively large design of Consolidation at the time for any railroad outside of the US. BP supplied 28 more the next year, most likely to the same design.
