The NVR Small Loco Group was set up in 2012 to look after and give much needed attention to the Nene Valleys small locomotives. The group has taken Hudswell Clarke 0-6-0ST No.1539 ‘Derek Crouch, Hunslet 0-6-0ST No.1953 Jacks Green, and Danish F Class 0-6-0T No.656 Tinkerbell.
With Tinkerbell currently progressing through overhaul and with Derek Crouch on display as the footplate accessible loco, so far the attention has been on the cosmetic restoration of Derek Crouch. Now this is complete Jacks Green will go into the shed and receive a cosmetic restoration itself. The group will also be helping to reassemble Tinkerbell, pushing it forward to an eagerly awaited completion of its overhaul.
