Mike's Picture of the Week 2014/40

DSB - Danish Sate railways - Hs II class 0-4-0T no. 380 and three heaped hopper wagons grace the skyline in an industrial setting somewhere in Copenhagen on 4/8/58.
A total of 45 HS's were built between 1873 and 1902 with this engine being one of the second version produced from 1894 onwards. No. 380 was built by Neilson of Glasgow in 1894 and survived until 1959 although the last year or more was spent in storage. It's worth mentioning here that the first seven of this generation of the HS class were the last British-built locomotives to be bought by the DSB.
