London & North Western 0-4-2WT_crane Locomotives in Great_Britain

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class Crane Tank (Locobase 10639)

Data from "Tank Locomotives, L & N W R", The Locomotive Magazine, Vol XIV (15 February 1908), p. 28.

This sextet had 3-ton-capacity booms mounted on the bunker end, the hook being held in a stirrup projecting up from the boiler just ahead of the bunker while the engine traveled. It was used for lifting items on the docks or in the rail yard itself.
