Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Great Southern Railways Classes 372 and 393 were types of 2-6-0 steam locomotives exported to Ireland from Great Britain in 1924. They were designed by Richard Maunsell in 1914 for the South Eastern and Chatham Railway to be members of the SECR N class of mixed-traffic engines. The GSR 372 and 393 classes were part of a batch of N and U class locomotive kits produced under a UK Government contract at the Royal Arsenal, Woolwich. The Midland Great Western Railway bought 12 kits which were then assembled at its Broadstone works in Dublin. The first entered service as MGWR number 49 but the company then became part of the new Great Southern Railways and the locomotive was renumbered 375 and the remaining 11 kits were completed as GSR engines. The final one of the batch, number 383, was the last locomotive completed at Broadstone. The GSR designated them Class 372 or Class K1.show more
