The London and North Eastern Railway Class V2 2-6-2 locomotives were designed by Sir Nigel Gresley for express mixed traffic work, and built at the LNER shops at Doncaster and Darlington between 1936 and 1944. The best known is the first of the class, 4771 (60800) Green Arrow, which is the sole survivor of the class. 184 locomotives were built in 14 batches between 1936 and 1944 at Doncaster and Darlington Works, construction continuing through the Second World War as they proved their usefulness. The authors have trawled the collections of many photographers and have located at least one unpublished photograph of every class member; not an easy task given that no locomotive lasted longer than 26 years in traffic and many were built in wartime when photography was strictly limited.
