Description

Garratt locomotive number 54 and other 2-6-2+ 2-6-2 locomotives in a motive power depot. At this time Sierra Leone was under British rule and its locomotives were largely manufactured in Britain. This articulated locomotive was built in the 1920s at Beyer, Peacock in Manchester to a design patented by Herbert W Garratt. Sierra Leone's railways closed in the 1970s, and now only one private railway is used to carry minerals.
