1) The standard method of steam locomotive classification is used in most  cases, with a number relating to the locomotive's power (0 being the least  powerful, 8 being the most) followed by the letter 'P' for passenger, 'F' for  freight or MT for "Mixed Traffic" (both freight and passengers). The exceptions are non-standard classifications provided by myself for  reference, and are as follows.
D : Diesel
DE : Diesel Electric
RM : Rail Motor
CE : Crane  Engine
DR : Diesel Railcar
DAS : Diesel Articulated 3-Car Set
XP :  Express passenger
The Fowler 0-10-0 banker is not given a classification, presumably as it was  a one-off engine built specifically for banking trains up the Lickey Incline in  Worcestershire.

2 - Names - the names list are not necessarily the official names of the  class.   Some designs ended up with nicknames, some of which have been used in  the above tables and are listed in quotes.  

3) I have classed 6202 a.ka "Turbomotive" a.k.a "Princess Anne" as a separate  class to the remainder of the "Princess Royal" class, mainly due to the nature  of its power plant, but partly due to the fact that one source refers to it  becoming the sole example of the "Princess Anne" class after its 1952 British  Rail rebuild.

4) Designers
Hughes, Fowler, Stanier, Ivatt : as detailed in "The CMEs"
Aspinall : J.A.F Aspinall (Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway)
Barton  Wright : W Barton Wright (Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway)
Bowen Cooke :  C.J Bowen-Cooke (London & North Western Railway)
Deeley : R M Deeley  (Midland Railway)
D Drummond : Dugald Drummond (Caledonian Railway)
P  Drummond : Peter Drummond (Glasgow & South Western Railway, Highland  Railway)
Johnson : S W Johnson (Midland Railway)
Kirtley : M Kirtley  (Midland Railway)
McIntosh : J F McIntosh (Caledonian Railway)
Park : J C  Park (North London Railway)
Pettigrew : W F Pettigrew (Furness  Railway)
Pickersgill : W Pickersgill (Caledonian Railway)
Smith : F G  Smith (Highland Railway)
Webb : F.W. Webb (London & North Western  Railway)
Whitelegg : T Whitelegg/R.H Whitelegg (London Tilbury &  Southend)
Whale : G Whale (London & North Western Railway)

5) Wheel Arrangements
As per the standard Whyte Notation. Where a steam classification is used  (0-7,'F' or 'P') and no letter is added to a wheel arrangement, the locomotive  uses a tender.
T : Tank engine
ST : Staddle Tank

6) Numbers Built
The numbers in Table 1 represent the numbers built as of the publication of  the 1944 ABC (some classes continued to be constructed after 1944).   The  numbers in table 2 represent the numbers built at the end of 1947 (more were  built after Nationalisation).   Where more information is given on a class, the  totals in these sections indicate the final build totals of the class.
