History Of the Class 3F Fowler Jinty
The origins of this Fowler Jinty design can be traced back to the Midland Railway engineer S.W. Johnston. After the formation of the London Midland Scottish Railway ( LMS), their own engineer Sir Henry Fowler developed this successful design and provided company with an improved locomotive. A total of 422 Jinty's were built from 1924 until 1931. So many were required that the LMS employed sub contarctors, such as Vulcan, Bagnall and Hunslet to help with the production orders. Th elocomotives were versatile, at home shunting in stations,yards, and exchange sidings as well as on trip. They could also be found on passenger services and seven saw service on the Somerset & Dorset railway until 1930 when they were absorbed back into the LMS stock. The design was very successful and the locomotives remained in service until the latre 1950's when new diesel shunters, were introfduced. The numbers of locomotives declined with the last of the class withdrawn in 1967. Only 10 Jinty locomotives have been preserved.
