Mayflower Green

 

This locomotive saw a short burst of use on the Elmtree Lines, mainly the Narrow Gauge lines during the early part of 2013. Unfortunately the locomotive did not have enough power to operate services successfully and was sold on.

 

This is a mid 1980's built steam locomotive from the welsh Merlin Locomotive Works factory run by Tom Cooper.

 

Pretty and built in a simple fashion many of these locomotives suffered with problems over the years, many of the later ones to leave the factory were more susceptible to these problems.

 

Most problems with these (Merlin Loco Works) engines is usually restricted to the cylinders and steam leaks from pipework and connections to whistles.
