David Shepherd sells Black Prince
Since 1967 when it was purchased from British Railway for £3,000, Standard 9F class 92203 has been owned by wildlife artist David Sheppard. Since then 92203 was named Black Prince and it has become quite a celebrity and even a record holder. In September 1982, 92203 hauled the heaviest train ever by a steam locomotive in Britain, starting an incredible 2,178 ton train at a Foster Yeoman quarry in Somerset.
