Large Craven (with solid wheels)

6 sets of frames ordered by Craven in 1869 were used by Stroudley in his double framed ‘Belgravia’  class.  Technically, 204 and 205 were rebuilds of the 1864 singles (see here), although little remained of the originals.  The first 4 were built with domeless boilers and Adams safety valves, but as these gave trouble in service they were replaced with domes and spring balance valves.  The last two members of the class were fitted with them from new.

Although hampered by poor steaming, they performed a useful secondary role over their long service, in excess of 25 years.

‘Belgravia’ as originally built. Note the absence of engine brakes - it was tender braking only.

It is attached to a large Craven tender.

‘Goodwood’ as modified with dome and spring balance safety valves.  The Westinghouse brake has also been fitted.

It is attached to a Stroudley Outside Frame tender.
