Lambton Hetton Joicey Colliery 0-6-2 Locomotives in Great_Britain

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class 57 (Locobase 6318)

Data from chart of locomotives in service on three colliery lines on 1 Jan 1948 published on [] (viewed 12 Oct 2004). Works #3834.

In an interesting turnabout, Lambton Collieries, which James Joicey and Company, LLC, had purchased in 1896, bought JJ&C in 1924 after that company was voluntarily liquidated.

Ten years later, the last radial tank built specifically for the LH&J colliery complex arrived fourteen years after the last Stephenson (Locobase 6317). It was the same design with tubes that were 1/2" shorter between sheets.
