Description

As the Series One T Class before them, so too were the second series T Class ordered, the intention being to replace steam on the Victorian branch lines. The T Class fleet would be ordered and delivered in three separate series.

The second series of twenty one locomotives to be delivered were modified from the original design in that Clyde Engineering had raised the cab above the line of the hood to give more room to the crew.
