RH10 The Bradford N1 is 4584, a superheated engine and recently transferred to the West Riding. She was very rough but is leaving Wakefield all stations to Bradford via Batley and will face the formidable in 1 in 41 of Batley ''oil' (Hole). She has a sizeable load and at such stations as Upper Batley and Howden Clough in the middle of the bank, the fireman had to hold the train with the hand brake until the driver opened the regulator, then frantically unwinding it. The N1s were marvellous engines and always got away up the bank. On a Sunday, they took five Buckeyes up from Batley on the London expresses without assistance.
