Mystery preserved loco

Post by Rlangham » Tue Dec 06, 2005 9:53 pm

Just came across this on the Heritage Railways database. If you go to this page

http://www.heritagerailways.com/rlylocos.html

And go on 'north eastern railway' then click 'search', you get a locomotive number 1, apparently it's an electric loco number 1 4we, built at Bolton, and at NRM York. Does anyone know what this is? I reckon they've got it mixed up with the ES1 number 1 electric bo-bo, also at the NRM (Shildon now though), not sure though

Cheers, Rob

I suspect that this is a typographical error. There is a 4 wheel battery electric loco from the North Staffordshire Railway in the national collection.
