Photographers will now have better access to the only surviving Nasmyth Wilson locomotive based in mainland Britain, following the demolition of a temporary building at the Midland Railway - Butterley. Brown Bailey Steel Company No. 4, an 0-4-0ST built in 1894 (W/No. 454) has been on static display at Swanwick Junction for many years but, sandwiched between a perimeter wall and the temporary building, it has been well out of the limelight. Nasmyth Wilson (originally Nasmyth Gaskell & Co.) built over 1,500 steam locomotives between 1839 and 1939, primarily for export. The only other survivors in the British Isles are four County Donegal Railway 2-6-4Ts in Ireland.
