Torbane Works Railway

This possibly is Loco 69 X  or  360 X– It is definitely the Torbane Works Railway.
The tragedy of Locomotive No. 360X – around 1929 it puffed her way out of the small running shed at Torbane Retort Siding and made her last journey to Torbane Station were her fire was drawn and her boiler emptied of water. Here she remained until June 1930 when a Departmental Locomotive towed her to a back siding at Newnes Junction where she quietly rusted till 1940 when, according to an irate friend “she was cut up in a disgusting manner” for her scrap content.
