You know I like oddities. I was perusing the Internet the other day and was reading up on Lentz valve gear. (As an aside- Did you know the chap who invented it was Lenz but the valve gear was called Lentz to help the poor ignorant English speakers pronounce it correctly)
In doing so I came across the GWR’s flirt with it – 2935 Saint class Caynham Court.
More grist to the mill that the P2 boys are on the right track to rewrite history – Lentz valve gear was not a failure – it was the decision to remove the infinite variation of cut-off that doomed Cock o’ the North.
