Prototype background:

In 1942 the Ministry of Supply decided it had a need for a heavy duty shunting loco and adopted a modification of a standard Hunslett design. The modified design entered service in 1943 and after the war a large number of the engines were sold off, buyers included industrial companies, the Nederlands Railways and the LNER who purchase 75 in total, numbering them 8006-8080. They all passed into BR ownership and renumbered 68006-68080. Withdrawal of the class began in September 1960 and continued through to 1967.The J94 was modified in use to allow increased coal capacity and either version can be made from the kit.
