11 Freezer, C.J. V2 Class Green Arrows1984
Somerset Haynes 1984 0854294279 / 9780854294275 First Hard Near Fine 4to - over 9 
A near Fine unmarked copy in pictorial laminated boards. The V2 'Green Arrow' class of the LNER has been called 'the engine that won the war'. The prodigious work performed by them certainly gives them a valid claim. Intended to combat road competition and built to work fast-fitted freight, they proved equally useful on fast passenger trains. They were the second of Gresley's 'second-generation' locomotives and, but for the war, might well have helped bring about a rail revival in the 1940's. As it was, later tests showed that despite many criticisms they were among the most efficient steam locomotives ever built for the work they were engaged.
