The London Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS) Fairburn Tank 2-6-4T is a class of steam locomotive. They were designed by Charles E. Fairburn for the LMS, 277 of these locomotives were built between 1945 and 1951.
This design was based on the earlier Stanier LMS Stanier 2-6-4T, which was derived from Henry Fowler’s LMS Fowler 2-6-4T engine. Fairburn modified the design to have a shorter wheelbase.
It was also the basis for the later British Rail Standard Class 4 tank. They were used mainly for suburban passenger trains. Forty-one examples of the class were constructed by Brighton railway works for service on the Southern Region of British Railways in 1950 and 1951, replacing earlier designs.
