Museum Objects – One of our Local Nameplates

Name

05212 Carol Ann No.5 HE 0-6-0ST1821-1936 Holly BankCarol Ann No.5
0-6-0ST Hunslet  1821/1936.  Bought new.  Still at Holly Bank 1957 – since scrapped.
Robert Nelson No.4 and Carol Ann No.5 (Hunslet 0-6-0ST  1800 and 1821 respectively, built 1936) were named after the Colliery Manager’s two children.
On transfer to Littleton Colliery in NCB days – November 1959  – Carol Ann was renumbered ‘1’ by grinding the ‘5’ off the nameplate (look closely at the nameplate) and screwing in a ‘1’.  This was because Littleton already had a loco ‘Littleton No.5’
