The 3F "JINTY"

Some 425 of these locomotives were manufactured between 1924 and 1931. Mainly allocated to shunting and station pilot duties they also undertook occasional branch line work. The "Jinties" were frequently used for banking duties with up to three at a time seen assisting express passenger trains up the Lickey Incline on the Bristol-Birmingham line near Bromsgrove. They were frequently seen banking trains out of London Euston up to Camden - a particularly demanding task!
Designed by Sir Henry Fowler for the London, Midland and Scottish Railway they were based on earlier designs by S&W. Johnson.
Some of the locomotives were loaned to the War Department in WWII, providing welcome logistical support to the allied war effort.
A majority of locomotives enjoyed long service with the final "Jinty" withdrawn in 1967, right at the end of the steam era. The locomotives were always painted in un-lined black livery. Before nationalisation in 1948 LMS initials were carried on the tank sides. In BR service either lion crest was carried according to period.
