Description

Hornby: Hunslet GPCS 0–6–0ST ‘Lord Phil’ J94 Class

In 1942, Edgar Alcock, the Hunslet Chairman, convinced the Ministry of Supply that the Hunslet Class 50550 18” Saddle Tank, being of a more straight-forward design than the Ministry favoured LMS Jinty, would be a more suitable locomotive to meet the Ministry's robust demands for military operated locomotives within the UK and overseas.

The first locomotive was completed at Hunslett's Leeds works at the start of 1943, with many being subcontracted to Andrew Barclay Sons & Co., W.G. Bagnall, Hudswell Clarke, Robert Stephenson and Hawthorns and the Vulcan Foundry, in order to meet delivery requirements. In all, 347 had been built for the War Department by 1947, with two further engines being built, unauthorised, for colleries, followed by a further seventy seven being built new for the National Coal Board.
