The LNER 2-4-2 Locomotives
The 2-4-2T was adopted by many companies for local passenger work (and in at least one case for semi-fast duties). The LNER inherited 341 at Grouping (1923), and did not build any of its own. Due to the large numbers inherited from the Great Eastern Railway (GER), they outnumbered all other four-coupled tank designs.
