FORMULA
For n>=2, T_2(n) = Sum_{m=1..n} Sum_{l=0..m} C(m,l)*C(l+1,2)*(-1)^(m-l)*l^(n-2).
G.f.: 1/G(0) -1 where G(k) = 1 - x*(k+2)/( 1 - 2*x*(k+1)/G(k+1) ); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Mar 23 2013
G.f.: 1/Q(0) -1, where Q(k) = 1 - x*(3*k+2) - 2*x^2*(k+1)*(k+2)/Q(k+1); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Oct 03 2013
a(n) = Sum_{k=1..n-1} Stirling2(n-1,k)*(k+1)!. - Karol A. Penson, Sep 04 2015
a(n) ~ n! / (4 * log(2)^(n+1)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Apr 15 2022
MATHEMATICA
f[r_, n_]:= Sum[Sum[Binomial[m, l] Binomial[l+r-1, r] (-1)^(m-l) l^(n-r), {l, m}], {m, n}]; Join[{0}, Table[f[2, n], {n, 2, 30}]]
