The Caledonian Railway 944 Class just released!

The Caledonian Railway 944 Class were 4-6-2T passenger tank locomotives designed by William Pickersgill and built in 1917 by the North British Locomotive Company’s Hyde Park Works in Glasgow. Although the Caledonian Railway built a long and successful series of small 0-4-4T passenger tank engines, twelve locomotives of the 944 Class were the only large passenger tanks operated by the Caley. They were originally used on the Inverclyde Line working has boat trains to some very strict timetables and so gained the nickname “Wemyss Bay Pugs” amoungst Caley engine crews. In 1923, every member of the class passed into the LMSR and were repainted from CR Light Blue (Having never carried black or Dark Blue) into LMS Crimson Lake, although within a few years this gave way to LMS Lined Black. They were later displaced from the Wemyss Bay trains by LMS Fowler tanks and Fairburns and by 1948 all but two locomotives were allocated to Beattock shed, primarily for banking duties on Beattock Bank. Unfortunately, all were withdrawn and scrapped between 1946 and 1953.
