Designed by T.W.Worsdell, and originally designated Class E1 by him, the J72 was introduced in 1898 for light goods and shunting duties. They were a further development of the near-identical J71 Class, which had slightly larger diameter wheels, and were built atDarlington and Doncaster Works and by the Armstrong-Whitworth Company. 85 J72s were built, the last LNER versions in 1925, then, after nationalization, between1949-1951, British Railways built a further batch of 28 identical to the original 1898design making a class total of 113. During the late ‘40s, a number of J72s were fitted with vacuum braking, enabling them towork on station pilots and carriage shunting duties.
