Railway Marvel: Heritage Eisenhower Train
Transitioning from its original name, the Golden Shuttle, and bearing the number 4496 in 1937, the Dwight D. Eisenhower underwent a transformative rebirth post-World War II. Renamed in honour of the era’s heroic leader, it was renumbered as 8 in 1946, aligning with Edward Thompson’s LNER 1946 renumbering initiative. Following nationalization in 1948, British Railways gave it the new identity of 60008.
This magnificent locomotive’s service came to a close in 1963, but its legacy lives on at the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, Wisconsin, United States. The packaging of this marvel doesn’t just house a replica; it’s a time capsule brimming with information about the engine’s evolution and working life.
