Designed by Sir Nigel Gresley in 1939, these later versions of the V1 locomotive featured a higher boiler pressure which gave better acceleration and higher power output. They were also fitted with a French-style hopper type coal bunker which held more coal for longer journeys.

During World War II a number of these locomotives were transferred to help with the heavy wartime loads from the Royal Ordnance Factory at Thorp Arch until the end of the war.

Withdrawals began in 1960 and by the end of 1964 all the V3 locomotives were scrapped.
