This was a late example having been built by W Sisson of Gloucester in 1966 and being among the last engines built by them. It ran until about the early 1980s and was kept on stanby until 1990. It was removed in 1993 and installed at Markham Grange Nursery, Brodsworth. It can generate there but is a little underpowered and power is normally produced by a W H Allen turbine that came from a hospital in Lancashire.
