No. 70001 ‘Lord Hurcomb’ was constructed at Crewe Works in February 1951 and bore the name of Cyril Hurcomb who oversaw the Ministry of War Transport. It was constructed to Order No. E479/220 and completed on 14th February that year.

From Stratford shed, 70001 hauled passenger express trains on the Great Eastern Railway such as ‘The Norfolkman’. For over twelve years, the locomotive was in service on the GE section. In 1954, the total mileage was 78,600.

The locomotive was withdrawn from service on 3rd September 1966 and stored at Carlisle Kingmoor Shed (12A) until the end of the year. In January 1967, 70001 was cut up at Motherwell Machinery and Scrap Co in Wishaw, Scotland.
