Category:Ashington Coal Company 0-6-0 saddle tank locomotive No. 5 "Jackie Milburn"
English: Ashington No. 5 was built in 1939 as works number 1979 by Peckett & Sons of Bristol, one of two identical standard designs built for the Ashington Coal Company (the other being No. 6), which operated one of Britain's most extensive colliery railway systems. Having only ever been used on the colliery railway, in 1969 No. 5 was sold by the National Coal Board into preservation when the system was converted to diesel, going to the North Norfolk Railway. In 1991, No.5 returned to Northumberland after being bought by the Stephenson Railway Museum, where she was repainted into the "as delivered to Ashington Colliery" livery and additionally named in honour of Jackie Milburn (1924-1988), a local football hero who was born in Ashington. After a four-year restoration project, No. 5 was returned to working order in October 2010, her last steaming having occurred in December 1996.
