The GCR Class 9J (LNER Class J11) was a class of 174 0-6-0 steam locomotives designed by John G. Robinson for freight work on the Great Central Railway (GCR) in 1901.

Career[edit]

London and North Eastern Railway[edit]

They passed to the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) in 1923. The LNER classified them as J11 with sub-classes J11/1 to J11/5 because of detail differences.[1]

British Railways[edit]

The whole class survived into British Railways (BR) ownership in 1948 and their BR numbers were 64280–64453.[2][3] All had been withdrawn by 1962 and none were preserved.
