The H&BR Class G3 (LNER Class J75) was a class of 0-6-0T steam locomotives of the Hull and Barnsley Railway (H&BR).[1] The H&BR became part of the North Eastern Railway (NER) in 1922 and the NER became part of the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) in 1923.

Rebuilding[edit]

The locomotives were built with domeless boilers working at 150 psi. Starting in 1922, 14 of the 16 were rebuilt with domed boilers working at 175 psi.

Withdrawal[edit]

They were withdrawn between 1937 and 1949. One locomotive survived into British Railways (BR) ownership in 1948 and was given the BR number 68365.[2] None are preserved.
