Photographer Ian Smith wrote this about the loco:

"This is one of those "oddballs" of Industrial railway history, where a completely different company builds someone elses design. D249 is indeed a "Borrows" design, but was built by Kerr, Stuart & Co after the former company's demise. I, too, was amazed when I first came across her! Classic "Borrows", but actually Kerr, Stuart!"
