 This side tank steam locomotive was built by the well known firm of Andrew Barclay of Kilmarnock, who usually built locomotives with a characteristic saddle tank design (which will feature in later posts) in 1913 as works number 1338, for the Dalmellington Iron Company of Ayrshire, Scotland. It is seen here at Marley Hill on the Tanfield Railway in the summer of 2012, but has since been removed from the railway for restoration, to I believe working condition

  1. Do you know where this lovely little engine's gone? Simple looking machine, yet full of character!

  2. As far as I am aware, the loco is at the Llangollen Railway, in North wales.

  3. She is currently in the 'Train Story' shed at Havenstreet with the Isle of Wight Steam Railway as a static exhibit.

  4. She is definitely NOT at Havenstreet - as previously mentioned, she is at Llangollen undergoing a contract overhaul.
