On Thursday 13th February 0-4-0 saddle tank ‘Eustace Forth‘ departed the N-LR, after her loan period came to an end.

We’ve loved having her here over the last 8-9 months. She’s performed faultlessly throughout and was a pleasure for our crews to both drive and fire.

We would like to thank the 7063 Locomotive Group for loaning ‘Eustace’ to us and wish her all the best in the future.

She has now moved onto Peak Rail in Derbyshire.

This means that ‘Swanscombe No.4′ is now the sole operational steam loco at the N-LR.
