The Book of the Southern Moguls Part Two:  U, U1 Classes

As elaborated in the preceding volume in this series The Book of the Southern Moguls 1: N, N1 CLASSES Maunsell, from his appointment in 1913 to the Grouping in 1923 was responsible for the introduction of three new types; the N 2-6-0 with 5ft 6in wheels, the K 2-6-4T with 6ft wheels and the N1 2-6-0, similar to the N but with three cylinders.

We now need to divert into tank engine territory. The SECR ordered one each of the new standard designs, a 2-6-0 which became the N for mixed traffic and a 2-6-4T for passenger work. It was the latter that appeared first, a couple of months before the N mogul (No.810). This was K class No.790, in June 1917. Being a tank version of the N (boilers, cylinders and motion were identical) much of the description of the latter applies in the case of the K, in its shared 'Derby' and Swindon' features for instance.

This book covers U and U1 2-6-0s, 

  • U 31790-31809 (rebuilt from K 2-6-4Ts)
  • U 31610-31639 ('original' built new as 2-6-0s)
  • U1 31890 (rebuilt from K1 2-6-4T)
  • U1 31891-31910 ('original' built new as 2-6-4T)
