This locomotive was built in 1954 by Andrew Barclay Sons & Company.

Shortly after being built, the locomotive was transferred to CEGB Goldington, where it was renumbered ED9.

I am indebted to Colin Hall-Williams for the following.

Destination Lapland by Mark Wallington book of 1987 references that on his journey North through England, Mark mentions an engine on static display in Rocester “At the other end of the recreation ground sitting on a concrete base, you’ll find the rather unlikely resting place for the Kowloon-Canton Railway Steam Engine No.67, The Hong Kong Flyer, its engine long ago cannibalised, graffiti smeared above its boiler, and its lagging showing.”

In the early 2000s it was purchased to be used as spares for Andrew Barclay Works No 2354.

2352 was stored at the Swindon & Cricklade Railway for a number of years but is now at the Tanat Valley Light Railway where it is being overhauled.
