51 locomotives D Class 4-4-0 locomotives were built between February 1901 and March 1907 during the Wainwright period by the South Eastern & Chatham Railway. The design work for these locomotives was carried out at the SE & CR Ashford Works under the direction of the company’s Locomotive, Carriage & Wagon Superintendent, Harry S Wainwright (1864 -1925). Wainwright held the post from 1899 until his retirement in 1913. However, the design was undertaken by Surtees, who was the SE & CR Chief Draughtsman, having held a similar position with the London, Chatham & Dover Railway before it amalgamated with the South Eastern Railway in 1913 to become the SE & CR.
