Class T

A series of 5 0-6-2T locomotives built by Bagnall for dock shunting.

  Lightweight shunters built for use on the wharves at Port Swettenham and Singapore, which were limited to 8 tons axle loading. 321.02 was withdrawn and scrapped in 1948. The remainder were withdrawn in the mid-1960s, 2 being scrapped immediately. 321.04 was painted green and survived as works shunter at Sentul for a few more years. 321.01 was sold to Pan-Malayan Cement and also painted green but was returned to KTM and cosmetically restored to MR black livery in 1972, being photographed in KL yard in that year. By 1973 it had been placed on display in front of Pacific 531.01 outside the National Museum in Kuala Lumpur. It is now (2006) adjacent to the car park at the rear of the National Museum with 531.01 and EE diesel 22102.
