Unrestored ex GWR Hall Class 5962, Cogan Hall, has recently been moved to the Llangollen railway where it will contribute parts to the new built project 6880 Betton Grange.
Built in 1935, 5962 has been a preservation project for over 29 years, as long as it ran in mainline service. Withdrawn in 1964 it spent the next 17 years in the Barry scrapyard before being rescued. After 1981 it moved around the railways but no work was ever undertaken and this year bought for £40,000 by the Betton Grange Society as a donor engine. It is still considered as a long term restoration project as much of it will survive into the future.
