‘No. 201 Class’ 0-6-0ST 1867


When Johnson took over from Sinclair, there was a need for two shunting engines, and two 0-6-0 saddle tanks of different designs were purchased ‘off the shelf’ from Hudswell, Clarke & Co. of Leeds. No. 201 was delivered in April 1867 and was an inside cylinder locomotive. It worked at Harwich, and was reboilered in 1883, only to be scrapped in 1888.
