    Has anyone got any pictures of CAEN with its Royal Engineer name plate, at Longmoor. Austerity 0-6-0ST, War Dept No 75032, built by Hunslet as works No 2884.

    Or any pictures of WD Austerity 0-6-0ST's in Caen in August 44 on? Or UK loading/Storage pre D-Day?

    Looking for a picture of WD 75014 which was sold after the war to Dutch Railways and became a class 8800. The picture below was taken in Caen, in August 1944, just as it was unloaded from the ship, with it's crew.

    The book on the Dutch steam locomotives states that WD 75014 was sold to the Dutch State Mines 1947. Out of service between 1957-1959.
    Kind regards
