Hi John - this isn't Pelaw Main. It is the shed at East Greta Junction on the South Maitland Railway. The ex-ROD locomotives were indeed working from Pelaw Main in 1962. The locomotives in this picture are however all South Maitland Railways 10 Class 2-8-2T locomotives (built by Beyer Peacock). The individual locomotives are, from left to right, No. 26 (the second digit could be "6" or "8", but of these two only No. 26 had the reinforcing strip clearly visible on the side tanks), in the middle is No. 18 (identifiable by the low-set horizontal row of rivets on the side tank) and on the right is No. 25 (number clearly visible).

Hi Tim,
To add my thanks to Marcel's. Any help you can give is gratefully received.
David's notes are somewhat sparse and do lead to some guess work I'm afraid.
