Four tank engines are known to have worked the Wellsworth and Suddery Railway.

Biography

The Railway Series

The Wellsworth and Suddery Railway was one of the three railways that became part of the North Western Railway. After it was annexed to the North Western Railway, it became Edward's Branch Line.

It is recorded in that the Wellsworth and Suddery Railway had four 0-6-0 tank engines of its own. The railway opened in 1870, so most likely at least two of the engines possibly date back to this period, though it is not known if they helped build the line or if it was the contractor's engines who did that work. All four were still in service by the time of the 1914 grouping, though. [1]

Their fate afterwards is unknown as no further mention of them is made. Based on the advent of the later North Western Railway push-pull trains supplementing the branch line, it might be assumed that they have been either scrapped, relocated or fitted with push-pull equipment.
