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.
Some of the locomotives were loaned to the War Department in
WWII, providing welcome logistical support to the allied war
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withdrawn in 1967, right at the end of the steam era.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
