NZ2325 : Turkish 8F at Shildon

near to Shildon, County Durham, Great Britain

Turkish 8F at Shildon
Turkish 8F at Shildon
This is one of two 8F locomotives brought back from Turkey early in 2011. Turkey was a neutral country in WW2 and to keep Turkey sweet Churchill sent several of these locomotives to the Turkish railways. Since the 1980s they have sat disused in engine sheds. A group of British enthusiasts have repatriated a few already and these are the latest. The pair were featured in a channel five documentry. This locomotive to be sent for restoration in early 2012. I'm not sure where the other one is.
