Locos Restored

The NG15s Post Service


As was the fate of most steam locomotives once there was no further use for their services they were simply abandoned . In some cases those finding themselves out of service first also found themselves being donors of parts to keep other locos running. 

Some were left to rot whilst other eventually found themselves being sold on for further use and/or restoration. Some were fortunate in that latter quest and some, like 134, were somewhat delayed in getting to that stage. Some still find themselves 'in the queue' - the WHR's №133 is one of those. The following table is a list of all NG15s and a brief summary of where they are together with their current state. As accurate information is hard to come by, any updates to the table will be welcome.
