"I remember the days on my old line, when some of the big engines like Gordon were named after horses, which had won a race called the Derby. Lemberg was one, and Pretty Polly was another. What a silly name for an engine!"

Pretty Polly was an LNER A3 mentioned by the Elderly Brake Van in the annual story, Galloping Sausage. She was named after a female racehorse; the van commenting that it was a silly name for an engine.

Built in April 1925, after entering service in April as an A1 class locomotive, she was converted to an A3 in May 1944. Originally numbered 2560, she was later renumbered 61, becoming 60061 under British Railways. She was withdrawn in September of 1963 and scrapped soon afterwards. She was also one of Gordon, Lemberg, and the Flying Scotsman's sisters as well as a cousin of Green Arrow, Mallard, Spencer, and The Flying Thistle.



I've come to you, my friend, as I need some redesigning; to be a stub page is so confining. Can you give me the words I deserve?
