File:Turkish 8F at Shildon - - 2531973.jpg


English: Turkish 8F at The National Railway Museum, Shildon. This is one of two 8F locomotives brought back from Turkey early in 2011. Turkey was a neutral country in WW2 and to keep Turkey sweet Churchill sent several of these locomotives to the Turkish railways. Since the 1980s they have sat disused in engine sheds. A group of British enthusiasts have repatriated a few already and these are the latest. The pair were featured in a channel five documentry. This locomotive (45170) will be sent for restoration in early 2012. The other (45166) was sent to a museum in Beersheba, Israel in December 2012 where it will be cosmetically restored and placed on display.
