Industrial Railways Day – Sunday 18th October
On Sunday 18 October, we will be demonstrating all four of our Orenstein & Koppel single-cylinder diesel locomotives, including ‘Monty’ the only working example of a 3ft 2¼in gauge locomotive in the country, and probably in the world (post a bold statement like that online and you’d start an argument if not a war!)
‘Monty’ doesn’t often see the light of day so this is a very unusual occurrence. The other three are the 2-footers, ‘The Major’, ‘Sonia’, and ‘Redland’.
The passenger train will be hauled by a Baguley Drewry. It is also hoped that a couple of the local Thakeham Tiles locomotives will also be out and about with the Road Machines monorail adding to the mix.
