Number 8: LMS 2-Cylindered Stanier 2-6-4T
Let’s go back to Britain for the most obvious steam locomotive, the London Minldand Scottish Railway 2-Cylindered Stanier 2-6-4T. Built by Sir William A. Stanier between 1935 and 1943, these locomotives were based on Stanier’s 3-Cylindered equivalent and a total of 206 were built from LMS Derby Works and North British Locomotive Company. These 2 cylinder 4P tanks were designed for commuter passenger trains and suburban trains in the LMS system at anywhere at 70 mph (113 km/h) to 80 mph (129 km/h). They are somewhat identical to the LMS Fairburn 2-6-4T as the shape is somewhat the same. They continued doing passenger work until in 1960, the first lot of the LMS 2-Cylindered Stanier 2-6-4T were withdrawn and scrapped but the last ones were finally done in 1967.
