Prototype History 

In 1942, the Hunslet Engine Company designed the Austerity 0-6-0ST (LNER Class J94) for the War Department as it's main shunting locomotive for service during the Second World War. The first locomotive was built ion 1943 with 377 being built by 1947. After the war the military kept 90 for their railway system. 75 were sold to the LNER being classfied as J94. Some of the LNER J94's received modified coal bunkers and extra steps. Others were sold for industrial use. Between 1948 and 1964, 77 new Austerity locomotives were built for the NCB, which continued to use them into the 1970's. A combined 70 examples have entered preservation.
