No. 19

NCB No. 19

Built by Hunslet Engine Co Leeds in 1954 (Works No.3818).

Acquired from NCB Comrie Colliery Fife. Currently out of traffic for an intermediate overhaul with a new set of tubes and renewals to the brake gear, side rod bushes and  renewal of the thrust faces on the rear axle boxes. Since its last major overhaul the locomotive has been the mainstay of the fleet, generally performing very well, the locomotive has now been fitted with a lempor type exhaust which has dramatically improved its steaming ability.
