Era 3 (1923 to 1947) The Big Four (LNER, LMS, GWR and SR)
Small industrial locomotives like this have been used by companies with large amounts to move for as long as railways have existed. Their small size means that they can traverse smaller radius corners, enter factories, and require less infrastructure to maintain.
Often they would be used to shunt goods, preparing them to be collected by another locomotive which would then take them further afield.
* Class names often change over the lifespan of a locomotive, so this is not necessarily the class name used by the operator in the period modelled.
