Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The London and North Western Railway Webb Coal Tank is a class of 0-6-2T steam locomotive. They were called "Coal Tanks" because they were a side tank version of Webb's standard 17 in Coal Engine, an 0-6-0 tender engine for slow freight trains. The design was introduced in 1881 by F.W. Webb and had the same cheaply produced cast iron wheels and H-section spokes as the tender engines. A trailing radial truck supporting the bunker was added also with two similarly cast iron wheels. Three hundred were built between 1881 and 1899. Four were withdrawn in January-February 1920 and a further four in July and November 1922, so at the 1923 grouping, 292 passed to the London Midland and Scottish Railway.show more
