From last Saturdaay on our annual visit to Statfold Barn Railway near Tamworth. Here, no.19 is heading towards the turntable whilst Head of Train Movements Leanne is checking what's happening in the other platform. The three chaps seem to represent the average age of the attendees, sadly, although the loco crews are younger.
No. 19 was built in 1914 by Hudswell Clarke and spent most of its life at the Lautoka sugar mill, Fiji, one of several locomotives from there now back in England and on the Statfold Barn Railway. As at March 2010 some 51 locomotives were based on the railway either in an active condition or waiting for restoration or rebuild.
