Steam locomotive No. 19, originally from the famous Darjeeling Himalayan Railway in India, is visiting us this summer.
Built by Sharp Stewart in 1889, No. 19 is the only locomotive of its type to have left India, and normally lives on a private railway in Oxfordshire. This is therefore a rare public opportunity to see one of these locomotives outside India!
No. 19 is kindly being loaned to us by her owner Adrian Shooter, chief executive of Vivarail.
All dates listed are provisional until No. 19 has arrived and completed a test run. If travelling specifically to see No. 19, please check here, our Facebook page or phone nearer the time to confirm she is running
