SJ 1697 on the Nene Valley Railway

SJ 1697 on the Nene Valley Railway
Swedish Railways (SJ) B Class #1697 was built for the Stockholm-Västerås-Bergslagens Järnvägar (SWB Railway) in 1944 by Nydqvist & Holm AB of Stockholm. It was numbered 101 in the SWB fleet.

The SWB was nationalised in 1945. Eventually the locomotive became part of the Swedish Strategic Steam Reserve. It was acquired for preservation in 1979 and was a regular performer on the Nene Valley Railway for a number of years

It is now out of service requiring an overhaul but has been cosmetically restored.

SJ 1697 is seen drifting into Wansford Station on the NVR on a sunny day in August 1980
