BR Standard 4MT 2-6-0 No. 76079

No 76079 was built at the Horwich works of the former Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway in February 1957 and entered service with the London Midland region at Sutton Oak shed. After more than 10 years at Sutton Oak, No 76079 was transferred to Wigan in June 1967 where the duties were mainly concerned with mineral and general goods traffic, but it only lasted on this work for six months, being withdrawn at the end of the year. In company with three other Standard Moguls from Wigan, it was towed to Barry Scrapyard behind the inevitable diesel locomotive, arriving there in September 1968.

76079 has recently returned to traffic from overhaul and is ready for service, also passed for Whitby running.
