End

Minnie about to leave Skinningrove Iron and Steel Works at the end of her life there.  Notice the changes in her appearance; dumb buffers replaced the sprung buffers so making it easier to push shunt the slag pots, iron ladles and ingot bogies; a full crew cab (obviously taken from another redundant locomotive) and different safety valve arrangement, she had obviously had a refit during her long life on ”the ’Grove”.
