Midland & Great Northern Joint No. 81 to 92
Great Britain | 1900 | 12 produced
Locomotive Magazine, January 1901

The increased traffic on the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway required new freight locomotives around the turn of the century. Here was the opportunity to use 25 machines ordered by the Great Northern with 0-6-0 wheel arrangement. It was Ivatt's standard design, which was built by Dübs. Twelve of these were taken over, given the usual yellow livery of the MGNJ and given the numbers 81 to 92.
