Cry me a River

Post World War 2 the Nigerian Railways took delivery of 79 'River' class 2-8-2s to rehabilitate the run-down locomotive fleet - the first being delivered from Vulcan Foundry in 1948. Deliveries also came form other manufacturers builders including Henschel.

There was a grand total of one loco in steam at Ebute Metta on 20 April 1976 and that was River class no.153 'River Kampe'. There were three others serviceable that reportedly worked local commuter services in Lagos, but the story I was given was that they were out of use as the railway had not paid its coal bill!

Going nowhere fast

On 20 April 1976, dumped at Ebute Metta workshops, Lagos, Nigeria, was a 3'6" gauge 2-8-2 built by the Montreal Locomotive Works in 1949, reportedly based on a similar 3'6" design originally built for the Newfoundland Railway.

How long it had been dumped there is not known, but it was just one of over 60 locomotives dumped at this location that had been providing climbing frames for the local plant population for some considerable time.

Twenty-four were built for the Nigerian Railways of which 15 were seen scattered around the workshops on this visit.
