1800 Woodthorpe 4 January 1986

Hunslet 0-6-0ST 1800 Robert Nelson No.4 passes Woodthorpe on 4 January 1986 with the Great Central Railway's 13:00 Loughborough to Rothley service. Robert Nelson No.4 was built by Hunslet in 1936 for Littleton Colliery. After a brief period at the Foxfield Railway, it arrived at the fledgling Great Central Railway in early 1973, where it became the first steam loco to be put into service. In the 1990s it was transferred to the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway, and it then crossed the Irish Sea to the Riverstown Old Corn Mill Railway near Dundalk.
