Sheringham Community Paper
WD 2-8-0s engine arrived at Sheringham on 19 June and will be staying until the end of October, during which time it will have 60 steamings. It has a coal capacity of 9 ton's and a water capacity of 5000 gallons. The policeman escorting it from Wisbeach that morning said that it had been a long, hot journey, with the uphill times being at walking pace, very difficult for a motorcyclist!

These engines were developed from the WD2-8-0s, which were based upon the LMS 8F, the 2-10-0 locomotives were designed for quick and simple construction using fabricated components instead of heavy expensive castings and cast iron in place of steel for items such as wheel centres. The extra pair of driving wheels gave lighter axle loading and thus wider route availability. 150 were built by the North British Locomotive Company, the last were withdrawn in 1962. With 3672 this locomotive, originally 3652, was delivered to Egypt in 1944 and later sold to Greece. With the other two, it was brought back to the UK in August 1984, arriving at Ipswich on board the Greek vessel 'Empress'. Following a mechanical overhaul on the Mid-Hants Railway, with boiler work done by Plenty & Son in Newbury, it went into service on the MHR in 1986 and covered 18,168 miles there. Initially it was painted in BR black and given the number 90775. Later it was painted in WD blue as 601 carrying the name 'Sturdee'. It was in this livery that the Essex Locomotive Society purchased it and brought it to the NYMR in May 1992. However, numerous unforeseen major mechanical problems arose and much remedial work was required. Before it returned to traffic in October 1994 it was again painted in BR black as 90775.
