Excelsior

 

In the later stages of 2013 the Elmtree Line took ownership of a blue

0-4-2ST Excelsior steam locomotive.

 

The original plan was to use the locomotive on short goods trains, for yard shunting duties and maybe even on the odd passenger service or two.

 

Sadly shortly after arriving at the railway it was decided that the locomotive was no longer suitable for the needs of the railway and it was sold to a new owner shortly afterwards.
