The first three engines, Nos. 18, 23, 40, originally had port-hole cabs.  No. 44 was the first engine with the traditional Stirling wrap-over type.  See also under 281 Class 2-4-0 for further details of these early cabs.

551 SERIES
SHARP, STEWART

5ft-7in wheels, cyls 17in x 24in

Nos. 551-80 were built by Sharp, Stewart (1875-76).

Fig. 67
No. 551

These were similar to the 74 Series.

581 SERIES
KITSON & CO.
IVATT F2

5ft-7in wheels, cyls 17in x 24in

Nos. 581-600 were built by Kitson (1876).

These were similar to the 551 Series.

103 SERIES
WORKS LIST A3
IVATT F2

5ft-7in wheels, cyls 17½in x 24in

Wheels dwg T58 (5/1878) "for 4'-0" wheel for four coupd 5ft 6in engs". However, no further engines were built until 1882
General Plan dwg P31 (9/1882) for Coupd 5'-6" Engine (Universal class)
Nos. 103 (9/1882) etc had larger diameter trailing wheels (4ft-1in instead of 3ft-7in) so that underslung laminated leaf springs could be fitted, instead of the volute springs in the earlier engines.  The frames were longer and the cabs were thus longer.  It is possible some of the earlier engines had their frames altered, though evidence of this has not been found.

Nos. 103/04/12-15/05-10 were built 1882-85.  (Note, the number 111 was unavailable.)

Fig. 73
No. 103

These engines were the first 0-4-2s built new with 4ft-2½in diameter boilers, though a handful of earlier engines had already received them, including the very first Doncaster-built engine, No. 18 (fitted May 1881).  No. 18 was withdrawn in January 1903 and its number was not re-used by the GNR.

10 SERIES
WORKS LIST A4
IVATT F2

5ft-7in wheels, cyls 17½in x 24in

Nos. 10/12, 20, 326, 42/43, 951 (ex-67), 952 (ex-70), 325/55-58, 957 (ex 359), 953-56/58-60 were built 1887-95. 

The difference between this Series and the preceding 103 Series is not known.

The allocation of 951-60 is out of date sequence.  Nos. 951/52 (built 1891) were originally numbered 67/70, displacing two ancient 0-4-2 which then became 67A and 70A.  It was later discovered that the number of Duplicate Stock engines was in excess of the authorised number.  The new engines were renumbered 951/52, and 67A and 70A returned to Capital Stock.  This choice of a block starting at 951 (rather than 871) suggests the renumbering took place around January 1893, though Norman Groves (Volume 2) quotes a date of January 1892.  Later, it was found that 0-4-2 No. 359 (new 7/1893) duplicated a Sturrock 0-6-0 bearing that number and still in Capital Stock.  Presumably the Duplicate Stock already had its full quota so the new 0-4-2 was renumbered 957.  Norman Groves quotes the date of this renumbering as January 1894, though at that date Nos. 955/56 had not yet been built (new 10/1894). However if 955/56 were partly under construction then certain components would already have had these numbers stamped on them.

IVATT REBUILDS OF STIRLING 0-4-2s

IVATT F3

5ft-7in wheels, cyls 17½in x 24in, Gresley Dgm 4 boiler

Nos. 25, 52, 64/66, 107, 357, 538/65/72/75 were given Ivatt "standard" 4ft-5in diameter boilers (1900-02), together with Ivatt-style cabs.

A further seventeen were given 4ft-5in diameter boilers (1914-18) whilst retaining their original Stirling cabs: Nos. 58A, 104/08/10, 200, 325/58, 524A/53A/80A/82A/87A/92A/93/96, 955/59.  Most of their boilers had domes but the following had straightback boilers: Nos. 357 (1910-wdl), 596 (9/1915-wdl), 959 (6/1916-wdl).

No. 596, which latterly had a 4ft-5in. diameter boiler was initially taken out of stock in June 1921, but scrapped one month later.  Its boiler was later re-used, but not until after Grouping when it was fitted to Class J16 (LNER J55) No. 633A (October 1923).

The 0-4-2s became extinct in July 1922 with the withdrawal of Nos. 355 (F2), 358 (F3), 959 (F3), though they had been stored "out of stock" since July 1921 to enable their tenders to be taken for new engines.

So they just failed to survive into LNER ownership.
