BR Standard Class 9F 92214
Named in 2011 as ‘Cock O’ The North’ by the previous owners, and fully lined out in fictional BR Lined Black livery of which the 9F’s never carried. 92214 is now fully operational at the Great Central Railway. Between 2006 and 2008, 92214 was at the East Lancashire Railway on loan. The locomotive was bought by the 92214 Locomotive Group (based at the Midland Railway Centre) and was fully restored to working order. On the 27th January 2014 it was announced that 92214 was to stay at the Great Central Railway. Like no. 92203, this locomotive was named after being preserved. The name had previously been carried by three locomotives on the former London and North Eastern Railway (LNER), of classes P2 its rebuilt form as A2/2, and C11.
The name was suggested by Valerie Walter, the Company Secretary of the company owning the locomotive (PV Premier Limited), whose grandfather served with the Gordon Highlanders during the First World War (Cock o’ the North being the traditional epithet attached to the Chief of the Gordon Clan of Scotland), with no prior knowledge of the name having previously been used by the LNER for some of their locomotives. A ten year boiler overhaul was completed over 2012/13 and the locomotive and on 29th June, 2013 it gained a full ten year boiler ticket.
