MSR No. 2/MSHR No. 7 'Stanley' by Nictrain123 MSR No. 2/MSHR No. 7 'Stanley' by Nictrain123
Stanley was built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1917 by order of the War Derpartment for use in trench railways in France. When the war ended a few years later Stanley was put up for sale and was bought by the Mid-Sodor Railway. Stanley wasn't regauged properly, and so because of this he would often derail. Later, he was stripped of his parts and turned into a stationary boiler to power the pumping engine at the Cas-ny-Hawin mines. By the heavy winter of 1947, Stanley was becoming too worn out and could not power the pumping engine right which led to the mines becoming flooded by the melted snow. Because of this, the MSR had to close down and Stanley was sent to the scrapyard. Luckily before he could be scrapped, a man bought him along with another ex-MSR engine named Jerry and they were both kept in a warehouse until the funds could be raised to restore them. Luckily, the man's son managed to sell them to the Skarloey Railway where they were completely rebuilt with modern adjustments. After touring railways across Sodor, Wales and Ireland, Stanley and Jerry were given to the Mid-Sodor Railway Preservation Society where they were repainted into their original liveries, and put back into service on the Mid-Sodor.

say have you heard the ERS story of stanley. Basically they went into fuller details about his down fall, so what happend was he was rushing with the horse and cart which he shouldn't have been, rocking violently along the line until he had to make an emergency stop to avoid hitting some stray sheep, which led to him shattering his frames. thus ending his career as locomotive its really interesting story thought you might be interested.
