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.

The loco could remain on the NYMR well into the New Year. ANDREW JEFFERY
