Remarks & Notes 
Bickershaw Colliery used steam traction until 1979, 11 years after steam finished on Britain's main lines. The 'Austerity' 0-6-0 saddletank was a wartime design produced by several builders, with construction continuing after the war to feed a demand for powerful industrial engines.
