Nameplate from the French Company Corpet & Louvet locomotive, works No.936 of 1903. This metre gauge 0‑6‑0 tank was built new for the Compagnie Française de Chemins de Fer a Voie Étroite for their line from Nantes to Legé. After a decline in traffic, the railway was sold for dismantling and scrap in 1934.

Shortly afterwards, Nantes was acquired by the Waltham Iron Ore Company to work on their metre gauge ironstone railway in Leicestershire. Waltham Quarries closed in 1958, and the locomotive was scrapped in 1960.
