The class T9 or "Greyhound" as it later became known entered service in 1899 and were used for express passenger services along the south coast of England and up into London. Designed by Dugald Drummond these locomotives were used on the London and South Western Railway (L&SWR) up until 1923 when Southern Railway took them over and repainted them in a darker sage green, During the second world war they were re-painted in wartime black. After the second world war they remained in black with the BR logo on the tender from 1948, and continued in service until 1961, which gave them a long lived 62 year span.
