Sir Nigel Gresley The L.N.E.R.’s First C.M.E.

by Simon A.C. Martin


Simon A.C. Martin has written a new book to follow on from “Edward Thompson Wartime C.M.E.” published in 2021. At 460 pages, it’s quite the tome, and includes new information from primary sources that at times shows previously existing information in a new light.

The books deal with Gresley’s early life before embarking on his career first within the Great Northern Railway, and then within the LNER. The different chapters include the 536 class (J6), the H2 (K1 and K2) and the 2-808s O1 and O2 before moving onto his time in the LNER.

The book has been available for a month and already 25% of the print run has been sold, so if you’re looking for a book to get you through the winter, or if someone is asking you what you’d like for Christmas, click on the appropriate cover at the bottom of this page for more information on the publisher’s website.
