SMR 10 Class 2-8-2 First arrived 1912. All 14 from Beyer Peacock & Co. Numbered 10 to 31. Used by South Maitland Railways on various colliery lines in the Maitland/Cessnock Area near Newcastle. No 10 had covered a million miles by 1957. 3 were sent to Stockrington Colliery near Newcastle in 1974. The 11 left were retired in 1983 under strange circumstances. They were put in the Steam Shed and the doors were welded shut. The 3 at Stockrington were retired in 1987 also with much animosity. They were the last steam-engines in NSW still working and doing what they were designed for, moving coal.
