Several railway companies favoured the 0-6-0T wheel arrangement for shunting. So in 1887 it was decided to introduce a class of 0-6-0T locomotives specifically for shunting and for hauling local goods trains.The R class locomotives were designed by James Stirling as a new class. In all 25 were built at Ashford Works between 1888 and 1898. As was typical of Stirling’s designs, several components were shared with existing designs, for example the domeless boilers.
