Brewery Loco

Taken at the (then) Bass Brewery Museum, Burton-on-Trent in 1996.

I have tried without success to find the manufacturer of this little loco but it's not even mentioned on the Museum website. What I can say is that it is staged with a Director's Coach in a station scene. It is No. 9 - John Co-ed.

Neilson, Reid & Co. 0-4-0ST works number 5907, built in 1901. At that time Neilson, Reid was the largest locomotive firm in Britain, employing 3, 500 men and capable of building 300 locomotives per year.
In 1903 Neilson, Reid combined with Dübs and Company and Sharp Stewart and Company to form the North British Locomotive Company, the largest locomotive company in the world, outside of the United States.

Google is your friend!
Sorry, can't remember which site, but it's out there somewhere! I spend a lot of time researching for my work as a translator and technical author, and if it's anywhere on the web, I can usually find it! In this case I think I searched under Bass Brewery no. 9 0-4-0ST locomotive. A couple of web sites later, I found it.

Thanks again Peter.
It rather looks as though No. 9 is actually owned by the Chasewater Railway, which is not too far from the museum, and is on more or less permanent loan.
There also seems to be a suggestion that "Bass" is being replaced by "Coors".
I think a visit to the museum might be in order, they look to have quite a few old vehicles.

John, you may well be right, although this locomotive is not on the latest Chasewater Railway stock list. I could do with a pint now, actually!
