SG3 No.35 (GNR No.41)

15 SG3s were built for the Great Northern Railway by Beyer Peacock, in 1920/21. They were the ultimate development of the S family and known as the 'Big D's' and the most powerful 0.6.0s to run in Ireland. With the demise of the Great Northern Railway Board in 1958, S.G.3 No.41 became Ulster Transport Authority (UTA) No.35 lasting up to 1965, the last one being cut up in 1970.
