3 Photos – New to us

3 Photos – New to us

3 photographs came into the museum over the weekend, I think from the bric-a-brac on Brownhills West Station.

Hanbury in the snow

The first one is the Peckett loco ‘Hanbury’  of the West Cannock No. 5 Colliery,  No.587 of 1894, looking cool!

Wimblebury Rawnsley Road

Next is the Hunslet, ‘Wimblebury’ pictured on the Rawnsley Road on the way to Cannock Wood.  No.3839 of 1956.  Note the ‘frog-eye’ Austin Healey Sprite coming through on the inside!

Wimblebury smoke

Finally, another study of ‘Wimblebury’ – hope nobody’s got their washing out!

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’
