The H&BR Class F1 (LNER Class N11) was a class of 0-6-2T steam locomotives of the Hull and Barnsley Railway. The locomotives were part of a batch built by Kitson & Co. for the Lancashire, Derbyshire and East Coast Railway (LD&ECR), but the order was cancelled because the LD&ECR was unable to pay for them. [1]


The locomotives had domed boilers and square-topped cabs and were fitted with vacuum brakes.


They were used for banking, goods trains and passenger trains. When the H&BR Class A locomotives were introduced for coal trains, the F1s were displaced to shunting duties.


All were withdrawn between 1943 and 1946 and none is preserved.
