Haunchwood Colliery 0-6-0 Locomotives in Great_Britain

Class Details by Steve Llanso of Sweat House Media

Class unknown (Locobase 11702)

Data from the Ribble Steam Railway website ([], last accessed 18 October 2010) . Works number was 1883 in 1922.

First operated in Wales by the Haunchwood Colliery, then by the Arley Quarry, this locomotive received a new boiler from Andrew Barclay & Sons in 1950 and a new firebox from Hunslet in 1961 that included a new tube arrangement. The specifications relate to the rebuilt version of 1961. Its last service was on the Baddesley Colliery rails, from which it was bought in 1975 by the Dinting Railway Centre.

Steamed for another 6 years, the engine finally was shut down to await a complete rebuild. The RSR bought the 1883 in 2002 and plans to restore it, but as of 2010 had not done so.
