North Eastern Railway (NER) No. 66 Aerolite is a preserved British steam locomotive. It was classified X1 by the LNER.

NER Class R class of 20 British 4-4-0 locomotives

The NER Class R was a class of 4-4-0 steam locomotive, designed by Wilson Worsdell for the North Eastern Railway. They passed to the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) in 1923. In 1936, some were rebuilt with long-travel piston valves and classified D20/2. The unrebuilt locomotives were re-classified D20/1.

NER Class E1 class of 113 British 0-6-0T locomotives

The North Eastern Railway Class E1, classified as Class J72 by the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) is a class of small 0-6-0T steam locomotives designed by Wilson Worsdell for shunting. They had inside cylinders and Stephenson valve gear.

Wilson Worsdell was an English locomotive engineer who was locomotive superintendent of the North Eastern Railway from 1890 to 1910. He was the younger brother of T.W. Worsdell. Wilson was born at Monks Coppenhall, near Crewe on 7 September 1850 to Nathaniel and Mary Worsdell; he was their tenth child and fourth son. In 1860 he was sent as a boarder to Ackworth, a Quaker school in Yorkshire.

NER Class E class of 120 British 0-6-0T locomotives, later LNER class J71

The North Eastern Railway (NER) Class E, classified as Class J71 by the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER), was a class of small 0-6-0T steam locomotive designed by T.W. Worsdell. They had inside cylinders and Stephenson valve gear and were the basis for the later NER Class E1.

NER Class S class of 40 British 4-6-0 locomotives

The North Eastern Railway Class S was a 4-6-0 type of steam locomotive designed for express passenger workings. The first example was built in 1899. They were very similar to the NER Class S1, except for the smaller wheels of the Class S.

The NER Class W1 was a 4-6-2T steam locomotive of the North Eastern Railway. The class was introduced in 1914 as a rebuild of Wilson Worsdell's NER Class W 4-6-0T. At the 1923 Grouping, they all passed to the London and North Eastern Railway, who placed them in their Class A6.

The NER Class P was a class of 0-6-0 steam locomotives of the North Eastern Railway. They were designed by Wilson Worsdell for mineral traffic.

The NER Class L was a class of 0-6-0T steam locomotives of the North Eastern Railway. They were a specialised design, intended for use on the Redheugh and Quayside banks on either side of the River Tyne. They were replaced on the Quayside branch by NER Class ES1 electric locomotives in 1905 but were re-allocated to other duties.

Worsdell is a surname. Articles include:

The GER Class 127 was a class of a solitary experimental 0-6-0 compound steam locomotive built by the Great Eastern Railway at its Stratford Works in 1888. It was rebuilt as a simple locomotive in 1895, and withdrawn in 1913.

The NER Class A was a class of 2-4-2 tank locomotives designed by Thomas William Worsdell and built at Gateshead works for the North Eastern Railway (NER). Sixty locomotives were built between 1886 and 1892. At this time the class was designated class A by the NER and was the first class in the company to be given an alphabetical letter classification.

NER Class B1

The NER B and B1 Classes were two classes of 0-6-2 tank locomotives designed by Thomas William Worsdell for heavy freight and mineral on the North Eastern Railway, introduced in 1886. They were tank engine versions of the NER C1 Class 0-6-0, using both simple expansion and also the von Borries configuration for two-cylinder compound locomotives. Both types were later rebuilt using saturated steam and the compounds were also rebuilt as simple expansion locomotives, and eventually formed a single class. Many of the superheated locomotives were also later returned to saturated steam as their original boilers wore out. As a result the classes have had a very complex history mechanical history.

The NER Class S1 was a class of 4-6-0 steam locomotives of the North Eastern Railway. It was designed by Wilson Worsdell and five locomotives were built between 1900 and 1901 at Gateshead works. The S1 was similar to the NER Class S but had larger driving wheels and a higher boiler pressure.

NER Class R1 class of 10 British 4-4-0 locomotives

The NER Class R1 was a class of 4-4-0 steam locomotives of the North Eastern Railway. The class was designed by Wilson Worsdell and built from 1908 to 1909.

The NER Class F was a class of 4-4-0 steam locomotives of the North Eastern Railway. It was designed by Thomas William Worsdell and introduced in 1887.

The NER Class G was a class of 4-4-0 steam locomotives of the North Eastern Railway. It was designed by Thomas William Worsdell and introduced in 1887.

The NER Class N was a class of 0-6-2 tank locomotives of the North Eastern Railway. It was designed by Wilson Worsdell and introduced in 1893.

The NER Class U was a class of 0-6-2 tank locomotives of the North Eastern Railway. It was designed by Wilson Worsdell and introduced in 1902.
