It remains a minor mystery in British steam practice that the 0-8-0T was never remotely popular, in marked contrast to almost everywhere else in the world. The mighty Zs came about, however, as a more powerful replacement generation of shunters, a natural step up from the traditional 0-6-0T, in step with European and North American developments. Prodigious shunting machines, in the end they proved too powerful for much of the work that was available to them, and ended up most famously as bankers on the formidable Exeter Central-St David's incline.
