Hornby R3668 Class J83 0-6-0T '8482' in LNER Green, RailRoad Range
The LNER Class J83 was a type of 0-6-0 tank locomotive designed for short freight distances and heavy shunting operations. Originally conceived as the NBR D Class, this locomotive was made for the North British Railway (NBR) Company in 1900 to 1901, before being absorbed by the London and North Eastern Railway Company. The class was highly successful, with many all but three clocking up over one million miles travelled during their life span.
The first locomotive to be withdrawn from service occurred in 1947 during pre-nationalisation. Continued withdrawals occurred during the 1950s as diesel shunting locomotives began to take over. The last locomotive to be withdrawn occurred in 1962. Unfortunately, this locomotive was not preserved.
