Jinty

 

47383 is an LMS Fowler Class 3F 0-6-0T, more commonly referred to as a ‘Jinty’. These locomotives were primarily intended for shunting duties.

47383 was built for the LMS by the Vulcan Foundry at Newton-le-Willows, Lancashire as Works No 3954 of 1926, and entered service that year as LMS Number 7383. It first worked in the London freight yards before moving to Chester. Following nationalisation, it was renumbered 47383 by BR, who rated the class 3F.

The locomotive was withdrawn from service in October 1967.[1]

They were fine work horses. I can't recall having around the Southern region; I expect we had something similar, though.
Bill Phillips: I don't recall any in Exeter

Oh now that is what I call a BLACK engine. Gleaming perfection!
Bill Phillips: As black as the blackest Epson ink Mike
Looks as though it is ready to roll at any time!
Can I say it's cute? Or would that be really wrong?
I like these, sadly the only ones I've ever seen were on heritage railways me not being a LMS man as I grew up.
Bill Phillips: I never saw them either Brian. They are grand little locomotives
