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.
