The British War department produced 935 2-8-0 and 150 2-10-0 locomotives to support the war effort after the invasion. After the war they quickly became surplus to demands and the Dutch government acquired 184 2-8-0 and 103 2-10-0s, the latter almost two thirds of the entire class. They did their job in getting rail transport back on track. One 2-10-0 NS no 5085 resides in the National Railway Museum in Utrecht as the sole survivor of the 5000 class. An NS4300 2-8-0 was sold to Sweden and now resides at the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway.
Other examples of the WD 2-10-0, but that were never in possession of the Dutch Railways, can be found in the UK, notably no 600 Gordon - Severn Valley, no 90775 - North Norfolk Railway and no 3672 Dame Vera Lynn - North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
