Longmoor Military Railway 2-10-0 no 601 Kitchener photographed on Kingmoor shed on 31 May 1958. The locomotive had been 'borrowed' by the Scottish Region in June 1957, primarily in connection with tests involving Ravenscraig iron ore workings using an air-braked locomotive. It had also been put to revenue earning use on various other freight workings during its stay. 601 entered the North British Works for overhaul in June 1958 emerging as an oil burner the following October.
