Hunslet 0-4-0DMF Works No.4110
I am a Development Tutor with LookwideUk which is part of Northumberland Scouts. We are restoring a Hunslet 0-4-0 DMF locomotive at South Tynedale Railway at Alston. The loco will be displayed at the railway although it will not run as the engine and gearbox have been removed for spares for another loco. We are planning to produce some information boards about the loco and I wondered whether you might have any information about the locomotive. We have some detail of the history of its movements around the Durham Coalfield but any further information would be greatly appreciated. In particular we are looking for pictures of it or similar locomotives and diagrams of the cab area and engine compartment.
