Associated Portland Cement Manufacturers 0-6-0ST No. 'Matthew Murray'Posted by: Tom Burnham on 2005-12-19 16:18:49.513

Manning Wardle 1601 was owned just after the First World War by the contractors P.W. Anderson Ltd. who were building the Kent cement works at Stone, Kent.  On completion of the work in 1921-2, it was one of several engines transferred to the cement company, which was itself acquired by Associated Portland Cement Manufacturers Ltd. (APCM) soon afterwards.  It was then named 'Arthur'.

In 1967 it went to the Kent & East Sussex Railway for preservation.  The K&ESR replaced the original dumb (wooden block) buffers by sprung ones and provided the vacuum brake.  It saw some use on the K&ESR although rarely worked passenger trains.  Later moved to the Middleton Railway who renamed it 'Matthew Murray' and did a fine restoration job as seen in the photo.
