Britannia Class Pacific locomotive - No 70007 Coeur de Lion . The class was introduced in 1951 and didn't last very long. No 70007 only lasted 14 years which is an incredibly short time for a brand new locomotive. Such was the management of British Railways at that time. They were classified as 7P6F mixed traffic locomotives and were "alright" locomotives. Generally they couldn't hold a light to much older locomotives such as the 5P - 7P locomotives from the pre nationalisation era.
