Locomotive USA Class S160 2-8-0 5820
Locomotive USA Class S160 2-8-0 5820 on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, approaching Damems station.

No. 5820 was built in 1945 by Lima of Ohio in the U.S.A for the US Army to aid the war effort in Europe, being shipped directly to Poland. After the war the locomotive was taken into stock by Poland State Railways and re-numbered TR203-474. The engine remained in Poland until withdrawal for preservation by the Polish Railway Museum in Warsaw.

Purchased by the Railway, 5820 finally arrived at Haworth in November 1977 and entered service on the Worth Valley in the following year still carrying the Polish livery. During this time the engine was re-liveried to USATC grey and chosen to appear in the feature film “Yanks”, filmed on location in Keighley.
