    This loco was actually named KILTON, it was purchased from Steel,Peech and Tozer of Rotherham their number 26, and placed into traffic in 1961. Withdrawn from service in 1963 when the Sentinel diesels arrived, its boiler was then reused for heating the new diesel loco shed and the chassis used as an ingot carrier for several years.
