The Class R1 Tank 0-6-0T (ex-H/Dublo -1968) shares a chassis block with the 2-6-0T. The tool for this was lost in 1898 as a result few R1 locomotives were produced after this date. This LIMITED EDITION locomotive in Southern Green running number 1047 was produced between 1989-92, production code packer no.2 – 90104. During production only 71 examples of this version were made unlike the more common sister “Southern 1157”.
For many years the South Eastern Railway (SER) had possessed very few locomotives designed for shunting. Several other railways 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. 25 were built at Ashford Works between 1888 and 1898.
