LH&JC 0-6-2T No. 5

This locomotive was built in 1909 by Robert Stephenson & Hawthorn of Darlington, Works Number 3377, for Lambton Collieries, which in 1924 became Lambton, Hetton and Joicey Collieries. No. 5 was employed all its working life hauling coal transfer trains over the colliery ‘main lines’ around Wearside.

At present No. 5 is undergoing an extensive overhaul and can be seen inside the Deviation Shed at Grosmont.
