So little attention has been given to the small number, but impressive roster of the later day steam locomotives on the L&HR. To see those 4-8-2's (modeled after the B&M) with "Centipede" tenders or the massive 2-8-0's pulling a freight out of Warwick would have pleased any railfan.

Did the L&HR own any decapods?

The short answer:
Nope.
 
The long answer:
Reviewing the all-time steam roster here in Jim Boyd's book on the LHR.  And no, the LHR never rostered a decapod.  The early Cooke locos were (as you'd expect) 4-4-0s, followed by 2-6-0s, 4-6-0s, and 2-8-0s.  Locos of these latter two wheel configurations (tho later supplied by Baldwin rather than Cooke) dominated the LHR roster from 1892 to 1916, when the LHR bought a series of 2-8-2s.  In the 1920s, LHR bought a few more Baldwin 2-8-0s, followed in the 1940s by three 4-8-2's (by far the largest and heaviest power to run on the railroad).

While surfacing the through the net I stumbled across an article from the September, 1925, Railway & Locomotive Engineering about the L & HR's Baldwin 2-8-0 consolidation locomotives that were purchased in 1925.
