It would be extremely interesting to see a picture or any details of the other locomotive.

I would suggest that this is much more likely to be the remains of a locomotive of the former Dehri-Rohtas Light Railway. It would be No 6 if it is an 0-6-4T but there were similar 0-6-2 t locos.

Compare with my picture taken in 1979 which i have uploaded in the gallery.

Being ex DRLR would also roughly agree with it being described as based at Patna.

This appears to be one of the 0-6-4T locomotives built by W.G Bagnall for Ahmadpur-Katwa or Burdwan-Katwa sections of McLeods Railway.
If the owner of this locomotive is willing to give it away, it can be restored for placing on a pedestal at the very least. If there is interest, please contact me through the gallery address.

Not really!
This is the boiler number whereas locomotives were usually identified by their maker number or running number.

I too dreamt of owning a locomotive. Had I been successful in buying one, I would have found myself in a similar predicament for sure !!

Shubhrata - Please ask the owner of the two NG locos to contact me off line ( as I can at least give him some advise.

I understand another narrow gauge engine is also called Miss Muffet which has been stabled at Varanasi.

Good news, Harsh!

I photographed YL 5010 working an Express from Varanasi in 1980. The loco then had deflectors and decorations.

Thanks, Harsh, for your whole series of steam loco photos.
