The GER Class F48 was a class of 0-6-0 steam tender locomotives designed by James Holden for the Great Eastern Railway in Great Britain. They passed to the London and North Eastern Railway at the grouping in 1923 and received the LNER classification J16.

Overview

The F48 class, of which there were sixty, were built between 1900 and 1903 and had round-top boilers. The G58 had Belpaire boilers, like those fitted to the T19 class and the initial 0-6-0 to be fitted was an F48 No. 1189. A further thirty of the Belpaire boiler type followed to form class G58. From 1921, all the round-top boilers were replaced by the Belpaire type, the majority being superheated. The J16 category ceased to exist in 1932. At first Macallan blastpipes were fitted, but later the Stone's variable blastpipe was substituted. Plain blastpipes were substituted between 1924 and 1929.
