Hornby R3233 LNER 4-4-0 D16/3 Class - (Pre 1948) Loco

The Class D16/3 locomotives were a derivative of a locomotive reputedly designed by James Holden, CME of the GER but commonly believed to be the work of his Chief Draughtsman at the Stratford Works, Frederick V. Russell. The original locomotive was numbered 1900 after the year that it was built and named Claud Hamilton after the then Lord Claud Hamilton (1843 1925), the chairman of the Great Eastern Railway. The Claud Hamilton was exhibited at the 1900 Paris Exhibition and was awarded a gold medal.

The 4-4-0 wheel configured locomotive was quickly followed by an order for an additional forty locomotives which were built between the years of 1900 and 1903 and were classified by the GER as S46 (later to be classified as LNER D14s) but very quickly became known as Clauds . Soon after these S46, further batches were produced between the years of 1904 1911 and were fitted with Belpaire boilers and classified as D56 (later to become D15s). The final batch of ten engines, this time classified by the GER as H88, later to become LNER D16s, were built in 1923 and fitted with 5 1 diameter superheated Belpaire boilers and were aptly named Super Clauds .

In total 121 of these variants on the original locomotive were built with some 117 being transferred to British Railways in 1948. Prior to this there was a tremendous amount of rebuilding visited on the Class. The D15 locomotives were the residue of the original D15s, plus the earlier D14 engines, which had been rebuilt with Belpaire boilers. Many of these locomotives were later rebuilt as D16/2s and D16/3s. Any remaining locomotives in this group were converted to D15/2s and but simply known as D15s.
