Stanier 8F 2-8-0

Designed by William Stanier following his move from the Great Western Railway these locomotives were introduced in 1935 as a mainline freight engine and incorporated the same two-cylinder arrangement as the black fives. These locomotives had a tractive effort of 33,000lbs. Initially classified 7F, this was changed to the more familiar 8F for later builds. During World War 2 many were built for military use before the advent of the 'Austerity' 2-8-0.
