I can't think of any design of UK 2-6-0 tank engines, or conversely a 0-6-2 tender engine, though I recall reading examples of the later existed in Portugal.

Same. There were a few 4-6-0Ts but not 2-6-0Ts AFAIK.

(revolting pedant hat on) Hawksworth’s 2-6-0PT is a UK design of UK tank locomotive (while I’ve got my revolting pedant hat on, the engine is only the cylinders, pistons and motion, irrelevant to a discussion of matters relating to tank, tender, or wheel arrangement) and tanks and though as it never got beyond the design stage it is not a UK 2-6-0T locomotive...

They were for the USA.

The G&KER had a 2-6-0T named Blackpool

Didn't know about this. Any photos?

Not opening that can of worms.

0-6-2 tender takes weight, hence TE off of the drivers onto a dead axle.   Though, if you had a situation with length restrictions, and need for a massive firebox and higher speeds, maybe some potential?

 

But 0-4-2 tender engines were popular in some quarters - perhaps especially among Ayrshiremen - in the 19th century.

Didn’t Fowlers build some narrow-gauge 0-6-2 tender engines for plantation service in various locations? 

Roundhouse will sell you a 16mm scale live steam model of one. Apparently the rusting hulk of one survives in Australia, too.

Fair.   I personally adore the LB&SC B1 class.   Maybe stability?  Many 19th-century concepts seem to preclude commonly accepted practices.

Yes the 0-4-2 was popular in Ayrshire but this one spent most of it’s time in Galloway working on the Port Road and Portpatrick branch!  Hence the tender cab.

G&KER 'Blackpool'

Interesting. As someone who loves unusual tank locos, this definitely piques my interest. Standard gauge, I assume? Not a line I'm actually familiar with.

Yes. It passed into LMS ownership but I can't find any info about disposal.

 

And I found another one!

"LMS Locomotives Vol.2" by Essery and Jenkinson pictures all four absorbed Knott End Railway locos including Blackpool, which became LMS 11680 and was withdrawn in 1927

It was built by Manning Wardle.

It notes that it was one of only 2 standard Gauge 2-6-0Ts in the UK.

"Uses for on old Mainline J72 #94": splice extended boiler and tanks into middle and add a front pony wheel.

the 0-6-2 for south africa is a Kitson of 1890 "Clara" of the Namaqualand railway and is still there

The Fowler loco for the Sudan has a bit of the look of a Beyer-Peacock/Fowler Met "A" class 4-4-0T.image.png.4273b81a348946c1f6663affcec9142a.png

The cab is nothing like UK practice though.

It is, if you rotated it 90 deg., similar to the original LSWR B4 cabs.

I think it's more of a sun shade than a cab as we would know it.
