The LNER Class J64 was a class of three 0-6-0T steam locomotives of the London and North Eastern Railway.

Contents

They were built by Hudswell Clarke for the Mid-Suffolk Light Railway and were acquired by the LNER when it took over the Mid-Suffolk in 1924. Number 3 was withdrawn immediately and never received an LNER number. Nos. 1 and 2 were renumbered as LNER 8316 and 8317 respectively.

Dimensions

The dimensions for Nos. 1 and 2 are shown in the infobox (right). Dimensions for No. 3 are not known but it is believed to have been similar to No. 1, except that the cylinder bore was 14 inches.

  • No.1 (LNER 8316) January 1928
  • No.2 (LNER 8317) December 1929
