BR A3 Class 'Trigo' 60084, circa 1949-52
Product Code: ST97603
Trigo entered traffic on the 22nd February 1930 and was allocated to Gateshead engine shed. Originally numbered as LNER 2595, Trigo was the eleventh of twenty-seven A3s to be built as an A3, the other fifty-one were A1s that were later converted to A3s.
All the A1 and A3 Class locomotives were named after famous race horses. Trigo was an Irish born race horse who won the Epsom Derby in 1929 making the horse famous and inspiring the LNER to name one of their new locomotives after him. Trigo is modelled here as British Rail (BR) 60084 in BR blue from the era of June 1949 to August 1952, during this period Trigo pulled a Streamline type tender and was based at the Neville Hill shed in Leeds. Sadly Trigo was withdrawn from service on the 23rd November 1964 and was later sold for scrap in January 1965.
