Acquisition of Schoma Loco 5130

The third Schoma loco 5130 was kept at Hatfield Peat Works where it was the gate guardian. The loco was originally acquired in 1990 and, at different times, worked on both Hatfield and Thorne Moors.

In 2019 Evergreen Horticulture kindly offered the loco to the Crowle Peatland Railway.

The loco was moved to The Old Peatworks in June and joined its two brothers for the first time in a long while.
