    • Hi Oscar,

      Throughout March people were invited to nominate up to three steam locomotives that they considered to be the most famous. Any locomotive that had three or more separate nominations made it through to the final vote. Unfortunately 70004 was not nominated so does not appear in the list.

      Best wishes,
