From TrainSpottingWorld, for Rail fans everywhere

Sir Ralph Wedgwood was an A4 Class locomotive of the LNER. It was damaged during a Baedeker air raid on York during the Second World War on April 29th, 1942. Due to the damage and lack of a spare frame, the locomotive was scrapped. The name was then reallocated in January 1944 to No.4466 Herring Gull.

It was named after Ralph Lewis Wedgwood, the chief officer of LNER for 16 years.
