April 11, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

LMS Stanier 8F 45170 was built in 1942 as one of the 25 locomotives sold to the Turkish State Railway during the 2nd World War and was still in operation until the 1980's. 45170 was recovered from Sivas in Turkey by the Churchill 8F Trust in 2010 and moved to Shildon for a while. It was then purchased and will eventually be returned to operating condition by the SRPS and moved to Boness on 13.11.14. 45170 was shunted up and down the platform then into the loop by recently restored 0-6-0 Austerity British Coal Board No 19.
