Q14.21. Imported Finnish Steam Locomotives.

During Autumn 1991 ten Finnish steam locomotives were imported into the UK by Enfield based Steam Traction Ltd, via Felixstowe and stored at a farm in Suffolk. Hey were intended to be destined for a “British Wild West” theme park in Cornwall, which later suffered financial problems. It is known that Hr 1 4-6-2 1016 is steamed occasionally at a private site in Berkshire and that 1008 of the same class is stored at Ongar with Tr1 2-8-2 1060, the latter being planned to move to the new Long Marston Military Museum. Tk3 2-8-0 1103 currently resides in a scrapyard near Newquay, Cornwall. What are the present locations for the remaining six?
