CR 903 Class “Cardean”

The Caledonian Railway 903 Class (known as the “Cardeans”) were a class of 4-6-0 steam locomotives designed by John F. McItnsoh for the Caledonian Railway and introduced in 1906 from St. Rollox Works in Glasgow.They quickly became the mascot the CR and was the biggest locomotive in the country at the time. They worked the biggest expresses in the UK at that time and are legendary in their status as one of the most famous 4-6-0s in the history of UK steam. All but one made it into the London, Midland and Scottish Railway (907 being destroyed in Quintinshill Rail Disaster) and they were sadly withdrawn by 1930.
