0-4-0 Laporte Fireless steam locomotive number 2243

This blue 0-4-0 Laporte Fireless steam locomotive number 2243 is on a demonstration goods train in early 1980s.

Chemical works and any were likeley to blow up with a spark from a coal fire were there main places of work for these engines.

These locomotives have no fire or burner in them. They were filled with steam from the factory boiler. They could shunt wagons till the steam just about ran out.  

This locomotive was built by Barclay in 1948. It was used at the Laporte chemical manufacturers at there Luton plant. For two years in 1958 and 1960 it went to the Laporte Warrington factory. In 1972 it was presented to The Buckinghamshire Railway Centre.

Around 1981 a way was found to use another steam loco to fill the engine with some of its steam and this slide was taken around this time.

Barclay fireless locomotive number 1477 ?

Quainton's has another Barclay fireless locomotive number 1477 which I think was built in 1936. I think this is it. The photo may have been taken on the same day as the one above.
