Blue Peter - steam locomotive
A lot†of locomotives were named following the L.N.E.R. tradition of using the names of famous racehorses.
The name Blue Peter was the name of the 1939 Derby winner owned by Lord Rosebury. In that year, whilst winning 'The Derby' and other races including the '2000 Guineas', the horse earned almost ¬£32,000 for its owner, more than enough to purchase three locomotives at that time.
Today the name is perhaps far more thought to be directly associated with the B.B.C. children's television programme.
