The LNER had had trials with 1 in November 1945 and bought 75 of them in 1946, numbering them 8006-80. All entered BR service in 1948. BR added a 6 to the front of there numbers and became 68006-80, and classified them 4F. They were used for shunting in docks, and other similar work where their short wheelbase meant they could negotiate sharp curves. They were used on the Cromford High Peak Railways in Debyshire,where they displaced the ex North London Railways  Class 75 class 2F 0-6-0Ts. They were withdrawn between 1960 and 1967.
