Ex-Wicksteed Park loco arrives at NLR for restoration

Ex-Irchester Quarries loco No.9 arrived at the NLR in February. The engine stood in Irchester recreation ground from 1969 to 1979 and was a popular feature of the Wicksteed Park playground from 1979 to 1992. Its new owner has now begun dismantling the engine ready for its restoration to operational condition.
