She then moved onto the Foxfield Railway in 2000 and after an extensive rebuild returned to traqffic in 2008.

She is seen here leaving Foxfield Colliery with a train of coal wagons during the Summer Gala last Saturday.

It looks as if it has a Giesel exhaust ejector Les
Les Auld: It has indeed Chris, fitted back in 1962. Thanks for the comment.
