Fairlie

An 0-4-4T steam locomotive, modelled on the Single Fairlie type locomotive ‘Taliesin’ which lives on the Ffestiniog Railway in North Wales. Built by R. Plummer and P. Dugdale for the Orchard Farm Lakeside Railway in Yorkshire around 2007. When built she had a flash steam boiler, with which trial runs proved unsuccessful. She was then sent to Great Northern Steam Ltd to be rebuilt with a conventional boiler; unfortunately this work was unfinished when GNS went into liquidation. We bought the Fairlie in a dismantled state in late 2019, and work will start rebuilding her once Chiltern Shuttle has been finished.
