Delivered new to Norway during World War II, 52 5865 remained there as
NSB 63a carrying its BR62 serial number, 5865. Withdrawn in 1958,
it was one of 4 BR52s stored in a tunnel at Dransgal.
It was then removed and restored for display in the UK at Bressingham
Steam Museum (near Diss Norfolk). Along the way it has acquired the name
Peer Gynt. The original works number (4216) can be seen stamped over the
leading bogie and it should be noted that records for Schichau's numbering
are very confused.
(Schichau probably 4216/1944)
