M&GN Fox Walker 0-6-0 Tank

MGN Fox Walker 0-6-0 Tank

Two 0-6-0ST engines named Ormesby and Stalham were built by Fox & Walker & Co. in 1877 for the Great Yarmouth & Stalham Light Railway. In 1883, this became a part of the Eastern & Midlands Railway, where these engines were numbered 15 and 16, respectively. These numbers were retained when the Eastern & Midlands Railway became the Midland & Great Norther Joint Committee in 1893. In 1901, No. 15 Ormesby was sold and replaced by a new 0-6-0T (LNER J93). No. 16 Stalham entered LNER service in October 1936 when the M&GN stock was taken over by the LNER. It never received an official LNER classification, and was withdrawn in 1937.
