A Brief History.

The Standard class 6, otherwise known as the Clan Class, was a class of 4-6-2 Pacific tender steam locomotive designed by Robert Riddles for use by British Railways. Ten locomotives were constructed between 1951 and 1952,  The Clan Class 6 Pacific was to be a smaller version of the Class 7 Britannias. They were designed to have an axle load of under 19 tons to give them a wider route availability. It incorporated a smaller boiler and various weight-saving measures to increase the route availability of a Pacific-type locomotive for its intended area of operations in the west of Scotland. They were capable of reaching speeds of 90mph, but unfortunately were cancelled 1954/55 due to a national steel shortage, then with modernisation, the introduction of Diesel locomotives.
