The LCDR B2 class was a class of 0-6-0 steam locomotives of the London, Chatham and Dover Railway. The class was designed by William Kirtley and introduced in 1891.[1]

Ownership changes[edit]

The locomotives passed to the South Eastern and Chatham Railway in 1899. All 6 (LCDR nos. 652-657) survived into Southern Railway ownership in 1923. They had all been withdrawn by 1933.
