Sheringham and the North Norfolk Railway (1), Norfolk, England
Locomotive 90775 was built in 1943 by North British Locomotive Co., Glasgow, for the War Department. During World War II there was an urgent need for large freight engines to assist with the war effort both at home and overseas so this locomotive was originally shipped to the Middle East and ended up in Egypt where it worked until 1945. It was returned to the UK in 1984.
