The 45 Class was very similar to the Rhymney Railway P Class with 5' 0" driving wheels for use on passenger services.
Purchased in two lots of three in 1915 Nos 45-47 and 1921 numbers 48-50. All were supplied with a parrallel boiler and round top firebox.
Notable features were round top tanks, stepped in cab, front sand boxes on the footplate, round cab windows and bunker coal rails.
