Data from the May 1916 issue of RME. Works numbers were 55555 in March 1916, 59895-59914 in August 1918.

These Wootten-firebox locomotives were of conventional single-cab design of mammoth proportions for a Consolidation. The first of this class was delivered in 1916 with a bp of 200 psi.
Even the sizable boiler was only just enough to supply steam to the large cylinders. All but 1219 had their bps raised to 215 psi in 1926. 1219 received a welded boiler in 1937 that allowed an operating pressure of 225 psi.
Using relatively tall drivers, they toiled away for decades only retiring in 1951-1953.
