Welcome to Everything 76084

This is a temporary site as we prepare to migrate over to a new template. We crave your patience in this matter and hope that the site will be fully functional within a short space of time.

Whilst we have been developing this website over a number of years we believe we’ve gathered all there is to know about our ex-British Railways Standard Class 4 steam locomotive number 76084.

There may be some tiny snippets of information out there that we have yet to uncover and we’d dearly like to hear about them. One item we are always keen to update is the sightings that anyone has on record of our locomotive when she was still owned by British Railways (BR). Just recently some more sightings have been added to our list showing that even when 76084 was a Wigan Springs Branch locomotive she spent a lot of time in St. Helens.

Shareholders and Supporters News

We are pleased to announce that the Annual Supporters’ Day will once again be held on Saturday, 3rd August 2019. The format of the Day, whilst being similar to previous years, will coincide with the North Norfolk Railway’s Somerset & Dorset Weekend; so plenty to see with visiting locomotives in operation. A schedule of the day will follow in due course but in the meantime if you have any suggestions on how you might like the day to run do get in touch. So if you’re eligible to take part please put it in your diary and inform the Company Secretary (admin@Standard4.com) of your intention to attend in good time along with any of your suggestions . The Board of Directors look forward to meeting up with you again in August.

Loco News

76084 has passed its “cold” and “in steam” boiler examinations. She has also been inspected and re-certified for main line running. She is now in service on the North Norfolk Railway and is again hauling The North Norfolkman dining trains to Cromer this summer season.

The locomotive suffered a broken tender spring which was replaced from a spare held in stock.

76084 continues to be a most reliable performer.

Steaming Across the Pennines

This new book by Anthony Dawson published on 15 October 2018 features several images (which I have had been shown) of 76084 by Ian Hardman in Lancashire in 2017 both on the main line and at the East Lancashire Railway. It is available at Smith’s and Waterstone’s – the button will take you to its Amazon page.
