No4 Armistice

No4 Armistice was built by Bagnall of Stafford in 1919 (works number 2088). One of a batch of six 0-4-0 saddle tanks ordered by the British goverment to assist in the war effort. The war was over by the time it was completed and the loco went to the sewage works at Minworth, Warwickshire run by the Birmingham, Tame and Rea District Drainage Board.
Retired in 1961 the locomotive spent several years in private preservation and was renamed ‘Lady Luxborough’. It was moved to Bredgar in 1991 where it reverted to its original name. Extensive rebuilding was necessary before it entered service here in 1992.
