This information indicates that at least the F-2-a class with 80 inch drivers had mechanical stokers, but is unclear if the F-1-a class with 75 inch drivers was also so equipped.

This use of the Jubilees on relatively long freights on the flatter districts is reminiscent of the Southern Pacific 2-6-0 Moguls in the Central Valley of California. They earned the nickname "Valley Malley" for their ability to pull long strings of freight on the relatively level terrain.
