The overhaul on rebuilt former Dundee Gasworks Kerr Stuart & Co built 0-4-2 "Bonny Dundee" has now been completed and the locomotive has returned to the Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway at Cleethorpes in Lincolnshire where it has now returned to service there as it is on loan term loan to them from the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway.

Built for Dundee gasworks in 1901 as a two foot gauge 0-4-0 well tank design. The loco worked there until 1959 when it moved to Caledon shipbuilding, still in Dundee. It was preserved by the late Ian Fraser, who relocated it to the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway in 1976. There it was substantially rebuilt as a 15 inch gauge 0-4-2 side tank loco. It was rebuilt again in 1996 producing the tender loco of today.
The album photos show the two rebuilt forms of the loco, but we would like a photo of it on original condition if anyone can help.
