Another O& K loco, like Kinder. This was built in 1930, number 12242. Presumably it had worked on Birmingham Corporation's Lake Vyrnwy project in Mid-Wales. Later it worked for British Gypsum at Tutbury, and ended up on Walney Island near Barrow in Furness where it worked into the 1960's. Sadly it was scrapped in 1963.
