WD152 Rennes Nameplate 16 July 2017

Robert Stephenson & Hawthorns Austerity 0-6-0ST WD152 was named Rennes whilst owned by the Longmoor Military Railway in the 1940s. It was latterly sold to the National Coal Board, and ended its days at Mountain Ash Colliery in 1979, a full decade after steam had finished on the mainline. Now fully restored at the Dean Forest Railway, the nameplate is pictured whilst the locomotive was at Lydney Junction on 16 July 2017.
