The No.2 Special Locos
The D49-class LNER 201 "Bramham Moor" was the fifth member of the No.2 Special locomotive range, replacing the original (also D49 Class) number 234, "Yorkshire", in 1935.
While the other No.2 Special locos (and No 3 locos) had a tubular body and squarish firebox, the LNER "2S" versions had a fully cylindrical body right up to the cab.

The original loco
201 The Bramham Moor is listed as having been built in 1932, so even though it was assigned a smaller number than 234 Yorkshire, it was a significantly later loco in the class (Yorkshire was the first of the class, in 1927)
