Empress (No 3061) Built 1954 by W. G. Bagnall
Empress was originally acquired by the NCB for use at Measham Colliery after use there it was transferred to Cadly Hill.
Empress was purchased from Cadly Hill Colliery in 1987. The C.E.G.B. offered the use of the old locomotive shed at Rye House Power Station, Hoddesdon, Herts. It was here that the restoration work on Empress was completed in May 1989, after which she was moved to Mangapps Farm Railway Museum. She has now been sold to the Pontypool & Blaenavon Railway where she is regularly in steam.
