The SECR N Class was a type of 2-6-0 (“mogul”) steam locomotive designed in 1914 by Richard Maunsell for mixed traffic duties on the South Eastern & Chatham Railway (SECR). Built between 1917 and 1934, it was the first non Great Western Railway (GWR) type to use and improve upon the basic design principles established by GWR Chielf Mechanical Engineer (CME) George Jackson Churchward.
Eighty N class locomotives were built in three batches between the First and Second World Wars. Fifty were assembled from kits of parts made at the Royal Arsenal Woolwich, giving rise to the nickname of “Woolworths”. They worked over most of the Southern Railways (SR) network, and were used by the Southern Region of British Rail (BR) until the last was withdrawn in 1966. One N class locomotive is preserved on the Swanage Railway in Dorset.
