When traffic levels on the North British Railway increased at the end of the 19th century, the Locomotive Superintendent Matthew Holmes produced forty new 0-6-0 tank locomotives for short distance goods and shunting duties that were introduced in 1901. The locomotives continued to be used for transfer goods, mineral trip workings, banking, and heavy yard shunting during L&NER ownership and thirty-nine locomotives survived into British Railways’ use until their duties were handed over to diesel shunters, the last J83 being withdrawn in 1962.
