    LNER 4698 CLASS K2 MOGUL "LOCH RANNOCH"
    This is a model of an LNER K2 class locomotive built in 1993 by J T Drury in Coventry, who built 3 more similar locomotives.
    Loch Rannoch has a steel boiler with copper tubes and a working pressure of 90 PSI, 2 injectors, cast iron cylinders with automatic drain cocks, Wallcharts valve gear with stick lever, mechanical steam lubricator and is fitted with vacuum brake equipment.

    The locomotive was the first steam locomotive to operate on the Top Field Light Railway in 2016 and is the flagship loco.
    Currently owned by John Mason it is out of action having the tender rebuilt, but should be back in traffic during the 2021 season.

    The original “Loch Rannoch” operated on the West Highland Line, which includes the Glenfinnan Viaduct featured in the Harry Potter series of films.

    The Great Western Railway (GWR) 4700 Class was a class of nine 2-8-0steam locomotives, designed by George Jackson Churchward.
    They were introduced in 1919 for heavy mixed traffic work.
    Although primarily designed for fast freight, the class also sometimes hauled passenger trains, notably heavy holiday expresses in the summer months.
    They were called "Night Owls" due to the fact they were primarily designed to haul goods during the night and that they could be seen simmering in the daylight, awaiting their nocturnal duties
