Chasewater Railway Museum
Recently acquired in auction for the Chasewater Railway Museum is a cast brass locomotive worksplate Bagnall 3160 of 1959. The worksplate was carried by a standard gauge 0-6-0 diesel mechanical delivered to Mobil Oil Co.Ltd., Coryton, Essex and later at Tunnel Portland Cement, Pitstone and Ketton Works, Rutland.
The loco was scrapped about 2004 at Thompson’s, Middlesbrough but several parts were saved for the Bagnall 0-6-0 DM 3119 at Chasewater, these being major components such as the engine, gearbox and fluid coupling. As is often the case the demise of one loco can lead to a prolonged life for another.
