Remarks & Notes 
The O4 class was a heavy freight locomotive designed for the Great Central Railway in 1911. 70 were built at Gorton Locomotive Works in Manchester. The design was subsequently adopted by the British Government’s Military Railway Operating Department and a total of 521 were built for service in WW1, mostly for overseas. 63601 was withdrawn from service in 1963 and eventually restored to service in 2000. Owned by the National Railway Museum, it is normally a resident of the Great Central Railway, but is a guest at the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway’s Steam Gala. Here we see it outside the shed at Haworth in steam ready for the start of the Gala the following day.
