Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway 'Ironclad' No. 957

957 (BR No. 52044) is a former Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway Class 25. They were known as ''Ironclads' after the battleships that were being built when the class was introduced in 1876. No. 957 was one of the last 50 of the class and was built in Manchester in 1887 by Beyer Peacock.

The loco spent its life at Goole shed for the passenger and goods services on the Axholme Joint Railway, and at Wakefield for the coal traffic to and from the Yorkshire and Lancashire pits to Goole and Hull.

Withdrawn from service in 1959, it came to the KWVR in 1965 and starred in the famous film 'The Railway Children' as 'The Green Dragon'. Out of traffic since 1975, the locomotive returned to full working order in 2001 for the first time in 25 years after a £150,000 overhaul. Still a film star at heart. the engine has also featured in BBC's 'Born and Bred' and the remake of 'The Hound of the Baskervilles.
