ROBERT Stephenson & Hawthorns 0-4-0ST No. 15 Eustace Forth (7063/1942) made a sort of homecoming to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR) in late-November after being hired in for steam heating duties.
The former CEGB loco was resident on the line for a short time from 1972.
It arrived direct from hire at Locomotion in Shildon, and was employed throughout December on heating the ‘Santa Special’ stock at Pickering prior to departure.
The loco could remain on the NYMR well into the New Year. ANDREW JEFFERY
