1926 The Lungstrom steam turbine locomotive was constructed by Beyer, Peacock and Co., Ltd., at Manchester, to the design of the original inventors and manufacturer (Ljungstrom), but considerably modified by British locomotive practice. After preliminary trials the locomotive was lent to the London, Midland and Scottish Railway, for service tests between London, Manchester and Glasgow on express trains.

1928 The Beyer-Ljungstrom locomotive worked a regular express train service between St Pancras and Manchester for a short time[1]

1930-1936 NOHAB built Ljungstrom steam turbine locomotives
