SNCB 4-4-2T No. 16.042Posted by: Steve Frost on 2018-04-21 13:18:12.34
This Belgian loco is a tank engine development of the Class 17 4-4-0, itself derived from the Caledonian Railway Dunalastair III design. The whole look of the loco is British although the Caledonian never produced a tank engine version, which seems a pity looking at the lines of this loco

SNCB 4-4-0 No. 18.051Posted by: Steve Frost on 2018-04-21 13:07:23.207
How appropriate to have the loco painted blue, for this Belgian loco is a development of the Caledonian Railway Dunalastair III design. The whole look of the loco is British and the bogie tender was also a feature of some Caledonian locos which were, of course, painted blue.

Since all the ex-Caledonian Railway locos were scrapped, this is a particularly interesting survivor to British eyes.
