As restored, in Bo'ness Locomotive Yard. On special duties!

SRPS Core Collection, acquired 1985.
Undergoing major overhaul.
Built 1954, Hunslet Engine Co., Leeds. Austerity design. Works No.3818.

The locomotive was supplied new to the NCB Area 7 (East Fife) at the Michael Colliery. It was overhaued at the Central Workshops, Dysart, in 1965, then returned to the Michael. After the disaster there, it was transferred to Wellesley Coal Preparation Plant where it remained until 1971, when it made its final move in NCB service to Comrie Colliery.

This is a standard World War Two austerity design of locomotive.

In a previous spell of traffic duty at Bo'ness, this locomotive carried a spurious British Railways livery and the number 68019.
