Ruddington: rusting railway relics
Ruddington: rusting railway relics
The boiler and bar frames are part of what the Great Central Railway (Nottingham) describes as a kit of parts - of an American Locomotive Co S160 Class 2-8-0 locomotive, No 70284, one of many shipped to the UK during the war to alleviate shortages. The tender on the left is much older - a Great Central Railway 4,000-gallon type dating from the early years of the twentieth century. This one was later adapted to carry limescale sludge from water-softening plants. The Nottingham Heritage Railway Centre is housed at the former Ruddington Ordnance and Supply Depot, built from 1940-2 and served by a branch from the Great Central main line. It operates steam and diesel services from Ruddington along the GC to Loughborough.
