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.
