Wb 292 and 299 were stored at Westport from June to October 1989.

Loading

Wb 292 and Wb 299 were prepared for loading onto well-deck wagons at Westport in late October 1989. Pony trucks and cowcatchers, cab and steam dome covers were removed to reduce length and height to suit the well-deck wagons available.
