61 MR1320/1918

This loco was delivered to the First World War Western Front in France as LR3041 ; repatriated and sold as surplus to Inns & Co., Moor Hill Pits, Colney Street, and latterly stored at Redland-Inns Waterford depot, Herts. Initially preserved at Brockham (Jan 1978) then Amberley. The loco then spent a period at Ian Jolly’s private railway near Mold. The loco moved to the Cadeby Light Railway on 5/3/1994 and then to Apedale on 29/4/06. When new, this loco would have been fitted with a Dorman 4JO petrol engine. However, when at Inns and Co., it was heavily rebuilt with the current diesel engine. At or around this time, the bodywork was changed to give the loco its current appearance.
