Era 9 (1995 to 2004) Initial Privatisation
R&H 200793 left Boultham Works on 26 October 1940, heading for William Evans & Co. Old Mills Colliery in Somerset. The colliery closed in 1966 and 200793 made its way into the fleet of rail construction contractor Grant, Lyon & Eagre Ltd, at one point being used at the Cheriton site during construction of the Channel Tunnel.
GLE Ltd became a subsidiary of British Steel in 1989 and was subsequently rebranded as GrantRail Ltd in August 1996. Sold into preservation at the Pontypool & Blaenavon Railway as 'Gower Princess', 200793 has now been fully restored and is the yard shunter at Williton at the West Somerset Railway.
If you're looking for some colour and something that little more unique to your railway scenery then this R&H 200793 is worth picking up!
