The Fowler 2-6-4T was a class of steam locomotive passenger tanks designed by Henry Fowler. There were 125 examples of the class were built. The last 30 numbered 2395 to 2424 were fitted with side-window cabs. The LMS classified them 4P, BR 4MT. They were the basis for a family of subsequent LMS/BR Class 4 2-6-4T locomotives.

Most of the class were used on longer-distance commuter trains from stations in London, Manchester and other large towns. A number were allocated to Tebay Motive Power Depot. Some were used to bank heavy passenger and goods trains up the steep incline to Shap on the West Coast Main Line.The last two surviving locos were withdrawn from service in 1966.
