Description

Built in 1933 (Works No 1709) this loco is historically significant in that it was the last 'Quarry' built by Hunslet until 'STATFOLD', the first of a new generation, emerged from the workshops at the Statfold Barn Railway after a gap of 70 years.
Micheal was exported to Canana in the mid 1960's where it spent over 45 years in the care of the Matthews family of Toronto before returning to the UK to be part of the collection of Hunslet locos at Statfold.
Awaiting restoration it was seen at the SBR, Staffordshire, England in September 2016.
