Ceylon Government Railways Hunslet 2' 6" narrow gauge J1 class 4-6-4T no. 292 taken in 1975 at the transfer sliding between Colombo Maradana and Colombo fort .
No. 292 was the last built of six members of the J1 clas in 1929 with works no. 1636 but I have no data regarding withdrawal other than that the narrow gauge lines were converted to broad gauge from 1991 onwards and the entire system since 1982 is known as Sri Lankan Railways.
As at 7/2/17 no. 292 is stored unserviceable at Colombo Dematagoda shed
