Preserved No. 27505 in LMS livery

The North London Railway Class 75 is a class of 0-6-0T steam locomotive.

Thirty were built to a design by J.C. Park from 1879. They were designed for shunting the NLR's docks and were very compact but powerful engines. This made them suitable later for transfer onto the Cromford and High Peak Railway in Derbyshire and some were sent north. They worked until they were displaced by J94 "Austerity" 0-6-0STs.

One, 27505, the last withdrawn in 1960 has been preserved and has run on the Bluebell Railway. However, as of 2005 it is out of service.
