Delivered on 20th July 1927, Hurricane was identical to Typhoon — a powerful three cylinder locomotive. She at once became Captain Howey's favourite and was fitted with special features such as stainless steel handrails and, in 1934, a high capacity tender modelled on the corridor tenders of the LNER.She remained three cylinder until the inside motion failed in July 1937. She fell from favour and the Captain had her painted blue and renamed Bluebottle. In this guise she was used to pull the new blue train until the war, during which time she was used extensively by the Army. After the war she retained her blue livery, found favour with the Captain once again and was renamed Hurricane.
