Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The London Midland and Scottish Railway Kitson 0-4-0ST was a class of 0-4-0 saddle tank steam locomotive designed for light shunting. 5 were originally designed and built by Kitson & Co. of Leeds to LMS specification in 1932 and numbered 1500-4. They were similar to other shunters built for industrial use. The manufacturer's works numbers were 5644-8. The LMS classified them 0F. These were later renumbered 7000-4 in 1935/1936. British Railways added 40000 to their numbers after nationalisation in 1948, becoming 47000-4. In 1955 BR constructed an additional five at Horwich Works, numbered 47005-9. These differed from the original batch having shorter saddle tanks with extra space given to longer coal bunkers instead.show more
