Steam locomotive and tender, British Railways, 9F class 2-10-0 No 92220 "Evening Star", designed by R.A.Riddles, built at Swindon in 1960, withdrawn in 1965.

Evening Star is historically significant as the 999th British Rail (BR) Standard, and indeed the last steam locomotive to be built by BR.

Evening Star was the only 9F to be painted in BR’s express passenger service livery of lined green. The name Evening Star was chosen following a competition held by the BR Western Region Staff Magazine. There were three winners, who all suggested Evening Star – a fitting name given that one of the first locomotives to run on the Great Western Railway was named Morning Star.

Evening Star had an extremely short life span for a steam locomotive and was unexpectedly withdrawn from service in 1965. The locomotive was claimed for the National Collection in 1975.
