    Does anybody the history/background of the Orenstein and Koppel locos at Willenhall Commercials? There's two 0-4-0 steam locos and an attractive (IMO) 0-6-0 diesel. I believe there is an Ruhrtaler Maschinenfabrik Schwarz and Dyckerhoff diesel there too.

    All imported from Peru I think, they were still there a few years ago but not sure if they are now?

    Interesting.
    Just a bit off track. Note the foreground loco with the absent steam dome. Typically for O&K locos there is no man hole, just two small holes for the steam. And there is no lid on the steam dome either, just two holes for the safety valves. The main regulator valve and steam pipe are outside.
