Ruston Hornsby Locomotive near Lower Leigh
Ruston Hornsby Locomotive near Lower Leigh
This is in the former station yard that is now privately owned. I was in the yard with the owner's permission. The engine was used at a BR track maintenance depot in the Midlands but the number it now carries was that of a sister locomotive used as a shunting engine at Stratford works, London. The engine was restored to working condition at the Epping Ongar Railway but was more recently acquired by the owner of this site.

It is a four wheel diesel mechanical locomotive, works No. 512572 of 1965 with a 88 horsepower four cylinder diesel engine.
