Cameroon Development Corporation 0-4-2PT No. 1Posted by: Russell Newman on {ts '2019-06-14 13:19:50'}
The former Cameroon Development Corporation Hunslet built 0-4-2PT No. 3756 named "Tamar" has been taken out of the display roundhouse and has been moved to the traverser shed at Statfold for restoration which work is now underway. "Tamar" is a oil burning locomotive but when restored it will not burn conventional heavy fuel oil that has been traditionally associated with oil burning steam locos. Instead the loco is to be used as a platform to test alternatives types of organic oils that could be used in the oil burning process. Which could help try to limit the effect of steam locomotives on the environment and looking to reduce their carbon footprint.
