The GCR Classes 9D, 9H and 9M (LNER Class J10) were a class of 124 0-6-0 Steam locomotives designed by Harry Pollitt (engineer) for freight work on the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway (MS&LR) later renamed Great Central Railway (GCR).

Career[edit]

London and North Eastern Railway[edit]

The locomotives passed to the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) in 1923. The LNER classified them as J10 with sub-classes J10/1 to J10/6 because of detail differences.[1]

British Railways[edit]

Some locomotives survived into British Railways (BR) ownership in 1948 as follows:

BR numbers were 65126–65209 (with gaps). All locomotives had been withdrawn by 1961 and none were preserved.
