Neilson & Reid Engines

In 1933, after the closure of the Cork, Blackrock Passage Railway, the GSR transferred its four 2-4-2T locomotives to the C&L line, renumbering them 10L to 13L

2-4-2 represents the wheel arrangements of two leading wheels on one axle, four powered and coupled driving wheels on two axles, and two trailing wheels on one axle.

2-4-2 locomotives were tank locomotives designated 2-4-2T. The symmetrical wheel arrangement suits a tank locomotive that is used to work in either direction
