Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Londonderry Port and Harbour Commissioners No. 3 R H Smyth is a preserved Irish steam locomotive. Built by Avonside Engineering Company of Bristol, England works No. 2021 in 1928. A fairly typical 0-6-0 saddle tank built to the 5'3" Irish broad gauge, she led a rather uneventful life shunting the dual gauge docks in Derry on the west bank of the River Foyle in Northern Ireland. She was equipped with a single off-centre buffer and coupling at each end for shunting 3' gauge stock, in addition to conventional buffers and drawhooks for 5'3" gauge. After withdrawal, she was bought privately in 1968 before being sold for 1 to the Railway Preservation Society of Ireland at Whitehead in 1972. The engine then acquired the nickname 'Harvey' in honour of showjumper Harvey Smith.show more
