The class were numbered 445456, and were an enlarged version of the 135 class. All were renumbered in to the duplicate list as 04450456 between 1908 and 1911.

All passed to the Southern Railway at the grouping in 1923. Withdrawals started in the same year, with four being retired in 1924, and the last seven were withdrawn in 1925. All were scrapped.
