Brecon Mountain Railway 2-6--2 #1 Santa Teresa

Brecon Mountain Railway 2-6--2 #1 Santa Teresa at the southern terminus of the line.

The Brecon Mountain Railway is located in South Wales in the U.K.

I took this photo on the 7th of July 2019, a few days after her return to steam after a lengthy rebuild.

From their website:

No.1 was built by Baldwin of Philadelphia, USA in 1897 (No 15511) as a 2-6-0 tender locomotive for the Mogyana Railway in Brazil. It was sold by them to the Santa Teresa Sugar Mill, where it was converted to 2'-6' gauge. Out of use in 1976 it was brought to the UK in 1990. Restoration and re-gauging back to 1'-113/4'' was started but carried out to a very poor standard and subsequently abandoned.

The locomotive was purchased by BMR in 2002. The loco has been completely rebuilt retaining the original Cylinders, Main Frame, Valve Gear and some of the Running Gear. The loco has been converted from a 2-6-0 to a 2-6-2. The boiler, smokebox, cab, wheels, axles, rear subframe, rear truck, front pilot and new tender have all been built in our workshops here at Brecon Mountain Railway. Santa Teresa No 1 came into service at Brecon Mountain Railway in June 2019.
