Delivered new to British Sugar Corporation Ltd., Nottingham Factory, Colwick, working here until 1955 when sent back to its Bristol manufacturers for repair. On completion of the repair work the loco was dispatched to the Ipswich factory of the BSC, remaining there until entering preservation, initially at the Nene Valley Railway, Peterborough in 1977.Nowadays Peckett 2000 is more usually found at its new home at Barrow Hill, near Chesterfield but sometimes hired out to other railways.
Nice photo. This engine is taking part in Weardale Railway’s War on the Line event 18th/19th September 2010.
Hi Ruth, thank you for your comment, I’ve added your event to my homepage with a photo of the loco when the paint job had been finished!
Best of luck for the weekend,
Thank you very much. It is going to be a fun packed weekend. I got some new photos when the loco arrived last night.
