Joining the Elmtree Line fleet in December 2013 Kate is a Roundhouse/GRS Special Edition ELSA steam locomotive.


Not many of these locomotive were built as a special edition alongside the larger Gungadin and Bangalore Belle also offered through GRS only.


Based on an 0-6-0 Jack class locomotive from Roundhouse Engineering with a modified Bachmann Large Scale plastic tender (somewhat too large in comparison with the loco) these locomotives are rarely seen.


After a few months service it was decided to part with Kate and she now has a new home in the UK.
