The LNER Electric Locomotives
The LNER operated a suprising variety of electric locomotives and multiple units.
Although its electric operations were eclipsed by the Southern, the LNER had the largest electric locomotive
stud of the Big Four companies, thanks to the
NER's interest in main-line electrification. 13 locos of
various types were inherited by the LNER, and all survived to Nationalisation.
The LNER built the first of its planned fleet for its Manchester-Sheffield/Wath electrification scheme. This locomotive
was on loan to the Netherlands State Railway at Nationalisation. British Railways built another 57 of this type
plus seven passenger locomotives for the Manchester-Sheffield/Wath scheme when it was revived.

Electric Multiple Units
Electric multiple units did not receive their own class designations. Instead, they are usually
referred to by the route for which they were designed. Stock also tended to have a number of minor variations,
so it is listed here on a per-route basis, with further divisions if design variations are significant.
Miscellaneous cars (eg. de-icers) are included with their respective route stock.
At Grouping (1923), the LNER took over two small electric tramway systems. These and their tram cars are
described on the following two pages:
