FORMER Dutch Railways 0-6-0DE No. 625 (690) (English Electric 2122/Vulcan Foundry D312 of 1956) is on indefinite loan to the Llanelli & Mynydd Mawr Railway from RMS Locotec, and so is not regarded as preserved.
It arrived at Cynheidre on January 31 and was the last loco at Boden Rail, Washwood Heath, having been used to shunt the main locos there for departures to various locations.
This followed closure of the site to make way for an HS2 depot.
The L&MMR’s next open day is Easter Saturday (March 31) from 11.00-16.00. Train rides are planned with the Dutch ‘Gronk’ and Mk2 buffet car No. 1206, with on-train refreshments available for the first time.
Other running days will be May 28, August 27 and Christmas at Cynheidre on December 8-9.
