We met up with Nene Valley Railway and Small Loco Group volunteer, Mathew Alden-Farrow to hear the remarkable story of Hunslet No. 1589 'Newstead' which was obtained from a shed at a convent in the east of England. The loco was originally thought to have been scrapped but in actual fact Newstead was discovered in near perfect condition.
The Small Loco group are currently looking for donations to help cover transport costs and to restore the engine to full working condition.
