NER 2-CO-2 electric loco EE1
In the 1910s the North Eastern Railway made plans to electrify its York-Newcastle main line and this locomotive was built for hauling passenger trains. .
After grouping in 1923 the London and North Eastern Railway dropped the electrification project so the locomotive was never used. It survived into British Railways ownership but was withdrawn in August 1950.
In 1945, no. 13 was classified EE1 (Electric Express 1) and renumbered to 6999; and under British Railways, it became no. 26600 in 1948.
