№53, a 0-6-0 Ruston 165DS class diesel locomotive named “Sir Alfred Wood” after the first director of British Sugar Corporation.
Built in March 1953, the loco was in industral use until preserved in 1991, at the Nene Valley Railway (from 1991 until 1996).
This was followed by a period at the Northampton Ironstone Railway Trust before coming to the Northampton & Lamport Railway.
After a change in ownership the locomotive is owned by the Northampton & Lamport Railway Charitable Incorporated Organisation.
Donations and volunteers wanting to help restore, maintain and operate the locomotive are welcome.
