They may not be in service on any specific day because of minor repairs, boiler washouts, not required, etc. Occasionally they may even be on short term loan elsewhere.

LNER Y7 0-4-0T - 985

Off site on loan


The Y7 was built in 1923 as a dock shunting locomotive, hence the small wheelbase to allow for tight curves. The engine worked for the LNER, followed by British Railways until 1952, when it was sold to the National Coal Board.

This loco is currently based at the Mid Suffolk Light Railway

GER Y14 0-6-0 - 564

In service


The Y14 was built at Stratford in 1912 for use on pick-up goods and branch passenger trains across the Great Eastern Railway network. The engine survived until dieselisation, when it was preserved by the M&GN society. It ran for a while in the guise of a J15 locomotive, however an overhaul by the M&GN Society which cost more than 350,000 has seen it return to service in a condition closely matching that as when it entered service as built by the Great Eastern Railway.

For more detailed information consult the Y14/J15 page on the M&GN Society website.
