160 locos were built as Class J67 and Class J69 during 1886-1904. There were many minor variations in this series and many of the locomotives were rebuilt between the two classes, in some instances more than once.
Engine 68529 was rebuilt with larger 180lb boiler and reclassified as Class J69 in 1906. However, it was given back the smaller 160lb psi boiler in 1938 and reclassified again before finally being reconverted yet again with the 180lb type boiler as Class J69/1, its fourth classification!
The Class R24 fleet was built from 1890 onwards and varied from the first 0-6-0 Tanks built by having a wheelbase which was 6 inches longer but a rear overhang which was one foot less, resulting in a shorter engine overall. The side tanks were also placed further forward with the cab being slightly smaller. Up to 1901, 140 of this type were built with 100 of them being used forsuburban passenger services, with the remainder being used as shunting engines.
The main difference in external appearance between the Class J67 and J69, lay in the larger tanks of the Class 69.
