Manufacturer description
Peckett 1426 was built in 1916 for the Glasbrook Bros. at their Garngoch Colliery No.3, which employed 468 men at that time. In 1947, as the coal mines were nationalized, Garngoch came under the NCB's South West Division, Area No. 1, No. 2 Group, which covered Morlais, Mountain and Brynlliw collieries. But by 1965 the colliery was uneconomical and the men and locomotives were transferred to Brynlliw, which had reopened in 1961 having received a £4.8 million redevelopment.
