The SECR ordered one each of the new standard designs, a 2-6-0 which became the N for mixed traffic and a 2-6-4T for passenger work. It was the latter that appeared first, a couple of months before the N mogul (No.810). This was K class No.790, in June 1917. Being a tank version of the N (boilers, cylinders and motion were identical) much of the description of the latter applies in the case of the K, in its shared ‘Derby’ and Swindon’ features for instance.U and U1 2-6-0sU 31790-31809(rebuilt from K 2-6-4Ts)U 31610-31639(‘original’ built new as 2-6-0s)U1 31890(rebuilt from K1 2-6-4T)U1 31891-31910(‘original’ built new as 2-6-4T)
