The Book of the STANIER THREE CYLINDER 2-6-4Ts 42500-42536

The LMS employed innumerable 2-6-4Ts, evolving from
parallel boiler Fowler engines through updated Stanier
taper boiler versions through to Fairburn’s final
development. Between them they amounted to over 600
in total.
The first Stanier engines were wholly different in having
three cylinders; moreover they were (most unusually)
restricted to one particular stretch of line. Apart from the
war years when they were all temporarily transferred
away, they could always be found working passenger
services over the former London Tilbury & Southend
system from Fenchurch Street to Southend and
Shoeburyness, until ousted by electrification in 1962.
As the information board alongside the preserved 2500
in the National Railway Museum at York pronounces:
‘Possibly the finest suburban that ran of British Railways.
