Peckett Type R2

Second in our series of four, this cover celebrates the Peckett Type R2. This Peckett 1689, named Thor was built in 1925 for the Tunnel Cement company of West Thurrock, Essex. The locomotive spent its entire life at Thurrock – where the photo was taken, and it was scrapped there in March 1965.
