Remarks & Notes 
Ring Haw is a Hunslet saddle tank, built in Leeds in 1940 for use at Nassington Ironstone Quarries, which were situated just three miles to the west of Wansford. The locomotive was used for hauling iron ore tipplers out of the quarries, usually three to four at a time to the dispatch sidings to make up longer trains ready to be picked up to be taken away on the mainline. It spent its entire working life at the quarry. ‘Ring Haw’ and its sister engine were the last two remaining steam locomotives in Ironstone quarry use in England when the quarries were closed in 1970 and the loco moved to the North Norfolk Railway in 1970. The locomotive is currently visiting the Nene Valley railway, very close to where it used to work. Here we see the little loco departing from Wansford station with a service to Yarwell.
