LB&SCR H2 HISTORY 

In 1911 the LB&SCR's operations were under strain as 150 locomotives and tenders were awaiting works repairs. Acting superintendent Lawson Billinton was instructed to allow unlimited overtime at Brighton Works to ensure as many as possible were ready for the summer, he was also granted the authority to construct more 4-4-2 'Atlantic' locomotives to help ease the strain on operations. Refining the design of D. E. Marsh's H1 Atlantic, six H2 Atlantics were ordered from Brighton Works on 4th April 1911 and with a much-needed quick turnaround they entered into traffic between June 1911 and January 1912, numbered 421 - 426. 

Initially classified as H1/s, the 's' denoted the incorporation of a Schmidt Superheater into the design of the internal boiler layout. Other changes to the H1 design included an increase in the size of the cylinders and the use of 10-inch piston valves, while the smoke box was carried on a separate saddle. The most significant change was the reduction in boiler pressure from 200lb to 170lb per square inch, the intention was to lower boiler maintenance but not to reduce performance, however, the reduction did impact their speed.

Once in service, they shared duties with the H1s on London-Brighton express trains including the Pullman services ‘The Brighton Limited’ and ‘The Southern Belle’, which the LB&SCR described as 'The most luxurious train in the World'. From 1925 the H2 was gradually replaced on London-Brighton services, however, there was still plenty of work on other routes including boat-train duties connecting the Newhaven-Dieppe ferry. It was at this time that they were all given names highlighting geographical features along the south coast.

Between 1935 and 1937 the locomotives were altered to suit the composite loading gauge; further alterations came in 1938 when Oliver Bulleid increased the H2 boiler pressure to match that of the H1s at 200lb per square inch. When cross-channel ferry services were suspended due to World War Two, some locomotives were put into store whilst others found work on other duties in Southern England. The H2s returned to boat train duties after the War until the mid-1950s. One member of the Class was withdrawn in 1949, but the remainder continued in regular use until 1956 and the last was withdrawn in April 1958. None have survived into preservation; however, a new build locomotive is nearing completion at the Bluebell Railway.

What are pre-orders?
Pre-orders are as the name suggests, placing an advanced pre-release order on an item. This means that the order you are placing is for the future release of a product that has yet to be released, or re-stocked.

How much are pre-orders?
Pre-order prices are defined at the time based off what we initially received from the manufacturer. This means that when we receive the product (to send to you), manufacturing costs, taxes, and even economic shifts in the country of the manufacturer, could affect the final price when we receive it in store. So, we suggest you use the price shown only as a point of reference, as it may not be derivative of the final price when it is received and ready to be sent to you.

How long do I have to wait for my pre-order?
The wait time depends on the release date of the pre-order product, and the time you placed your order. Pre-order release times also vary per product, per manufacturer, transportation and many other factors. If a release date is given from the manufacturer, please note that this is still subjective due to circumstances out of our control, and this isn’t indicative of our in-store stock date this could be a day or two after the release date.

Why am I being charged for my pre-order, even though the product isnt released yet?
This is pre-payment for an item's payment and delivery costs that isn’t released yet (pre-order) to ensure as soon as it arrives your order can be fulfilled and sent out to you a.s.a.p. Not all orders will be charged shipping depending on size, and total order amount (see our website for current shipping to find out more and our shipping policy for more information).
