The LD&ECR class B (LNER Class J60) was a class of 0-6-0T steam locomotives of the Lancashire, Derbyshire and East Coast Railway.

Four were built in 1897.[1] Three were normally based at Langwith Junction and the other at Tuxford. In later years they moved to Wrexham, with one transferring to Gorton as the works shunter.[2]
