IVATT 2MT TANK HISTORY

The London, Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS) lvatt Class 2 2-6-2 Tank Locomotive was designed by H. G. Ivatt with the first examples introduced in 1946. Using the ‘Prairie’ wheel formation that had proven so successful for the GWR and had been used by Stanier and Fowler before him, Ivatt employed modern labour-saving devices such as self-emptying ashpans and rocking grates to make these Class 2 Tanks more economical than the elderly locos that had been inherited by the LMS and which these would replace. Designed for mixed traffic duties, just ten were built by the LMS before Nationalisation. British Railways constructed a further 120, of which 50 were fitted with Push-Pull equipment.

The type found use on both passenger and freight traffic, working mainly on branch lines across the London Midland Region, although the final 30 to be built were allocated to the Southern Region from new and others had spells on the Western Region. A year after the final example was built, the design became the basis of the BR Standard 2MT Tank, proving just how good a design the Ivatt 2MT Tank was.

Withdrawals began in 1962 and all had gone by 1967, but thankfully four survive in preservation.
