    Many early locomotives for Dutch railways were British built. Some lovely examples in the Utrecht museum.

    Iraq has at least one 8f, and LNER type sentinel. The ~Us army may well have destroyed it tho'-it was what what thought to be Saddam's nuclear super train. Sure bringing it back wouldn't be as detrimental to their heritage as the Germans digging up their entire Walls of Babylon and taking them back to Berlin...

    Yes they have, but in 2009, whilst at Thirlemere, I was looking at "THE MAJOR" and talking to one of their curatorial people, who had the opinion that the loco "Might" be made available to anyone who had a "Credible" conservation plan as the loco doesn't really quite fit in with what's being done there. Very much an "on the hoof" conversation, but if there were to be a serious effort made, it could well be looked upon seriously. Having said that, the loco can only be described as "a wreck" and where could she possibly be housed when we can't even sort out "CECIL RAIKES"??

    there's a couple of these in Australia, former John Brown locos, along with the Kitson Tank engine version. They are "In need of TLC" to say the least, but there are plans to properly preserve them in due course.

    I think the term a "dollar" for (I think) five shillings came from this time?
