The Caledonian Railway 300 Class were freight 0-6-0 tender engines introduced in 1918 and designed by William Pickersgill. Forty-three were built between 1918 and 1920. They were numbered 294–324, 280, 281, 670–679 by the Caledonian Railway.
In 1923, they all passed to the London, Midland and Scottish Railway, and were classified 3F, and renumbered 17650–17692. On nationalisation in 1948, the twenty-three survivors passed into British Railways stock, and were renumbered by adding 40000 to their LMS numbers.

- Note 1
Not all the BR numbers were actually applied because some engines had been withdrawn before 1948. They were withdrawn between 1934–1963, and all were scrapped.
