The first reference to 10000’s designation as Class W1 was on 9 November 1926, but where the widely adopted name of ‘Hush-Hush’ came from is disputed. It could be that the nickname arose in the late summer of 1928, as news of Gresley’s new locomotive began to leak out. However other sources suggest this was possibly an internal Darlington name that came from the distinctively quiet motion sound the loco made or even because of a mistaken caption that featured in a Path News item.
