This saddle tank built by Andrew Barclay of Kilmarnock in 1910 as works number 1193 has the saddle tank characteristic of most Barclay locomotives, but unusually for an industrial locomotive, has the 0-4-2 wheel arrangement, with the four driven wheels followed by a trailing, un-powered axle and wheels. The additional wheels would accommodate a longer boiler, making it more powerful. The trailing axle is now missing and some other parts, and is preserved at the Tanfield Railway in County Durham
