The T9 – Drummond’s Diamond

A fav loco that I will get to see

Loco Yard

T9 - Mid Hants - 2015 - 30120 (1)When the line up for the Mid Hants gala was released the locomotive I was most excited to see was one I saw only a few years ago – the T9. Nicknamed “greyhounds”, the T9 class were a very successful design of Dugald Drummond.  Built in 1899, the locomotive has worn many liveries including Southern Olive and LSWR Pea Green.  Although it looks great in BR Black, you can’t help but think it would look even better in some of it’s earlier liveries.
