Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway 4-6-2 No. 1 'Green Goddess'Posted by: on 2005-04-20 12:03:50.093
When completed in 1925, the RHDR had not been built, so the loco was sent to the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway for tests, before being sent to the RHDR.

Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway 4-6-2 No. 2 'Northern Chief'Posted by: on 2005-04-20 11:55:51.173
The original Turntable at New Romney was situated outside the loco shed, and was the only way in or out. In 1935 Northern Chief rolled into the turntable pit, and blocked all the other locos in, suspending all passenger services. After this, the turntable was moved next to the shed, where it remained until the late 80s, when it was replaced.

It is rarely used, except on special event days.

Originally built as a 3 cylinder loco but, due to maintenance and reliability problems and excessive coal and water consumption, it was converted to a 2 cylinder loco by the RHDR in 1937 after the inside cylinder failed on a busy service train.

Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway 4-6-2 No. 7 'Typhoon'Posted by: on 2005-04-19 13:09:02.18

Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway 4-8-2 No. 5 'Hercules'Posted by: on 2005-04-19 13:05:48.323
Was used during the Second World War by the army. They armour plated it, and two ex-Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway mineral hoppers, and armed the hoppers with Lewis guns and anti-tank rifles, creating the only 15" gauge armoured train ever. It never actually shot anything but apparently caused the crash of a German plane that saw the small train and thought they were flying too high.

White Pass & Yukon RR 2-8-2 No. 70Posted by: M. Loven on 2005-04-18 17:28:25.443

East Tennessee & Western North Carolina RR 4-6-0 No. 12Posted by: M. Loven on 2005-04-18 17:20:54.123

There are no narrow gauge steam locomotives left from the the East Tennessee and Western North Carolina other than #12.   They were all scrapped by the mid-1950s, with #12 being the only one that escaped the torch. 

I don't know where you find that a '36 2-6-0 is still around.  I've never seen that anywhere.  In addition, the ET&WNC never owned a 2-8-2. (Narrow or Standard Gauge)

However, there are two surving ET&WNC standard gauge steam locos, which are Southern Railway #630 and #722 (Numbered 207 and 208 during the time the ET&WNC owned them) They both have the 2-8-0 wheel configuration.
