Ruston Hornsby 0-4-0 Class 20DC No. 222101 – 2’ Gauge

This loco was built by Ruston Hornsby at their Lincoln works in 1944.  It is one of a class that numbered nearly 1200. Designed for industrial use, the loco was bought privately in 2000 and restoration commenced.  The original power unit was found to be in worse condition than expected and a replacement obtained. A full strip down of the loco has been accomplished and rebuilding commenced. New wheel sets have been sourced and the seized gearbox freed. When complete, 222101 will be equipped to operate passenger service with our steam tram. Its history is still being researched.
