No2 Katie

No2 Katie is an 0-6-0 well tank built by Arn Jung of Jungenthal, Germany, in 1931 (works number 3872) and spent its entire working life in the Cameroons in West Africa. There, it worked for Westafrikanische Pflanzungsgesellschaft Viktoria on a 48 km long system serving banana, palm oil, cocoa, timber and tea plantations. Brought to England for preservation in 1973, it was acquired for Bredgar in 1980; an interesting feature is the lack of flanges on the centre pair of driving wheels, enabling very tight curves to be negotiated.
