Ex-DHR B class 0-4-0ST no. 789 with a train of wmpty wagons en route for Tipong colliery. The colliery bought 4 B class locos in the late 1960's/early 1970's which were subject to a major rebuild (new chimneys, dome fittings, cabs etc.). Two, no's 789 and 796 are still in use. The line runs for about one and a half miles between the colliery and the unloading point.
