100 Years old and still going strong - but not in steam!
Built for the Blakesley Miniature Railway in Northamptonshire all those years ago she is believed to be the first and oldest internal combustion engined locomotive in the world. The picture from a postcard in the author's collection shows the locomotive running at the Blakesley hall in the early 1900s. Sadly the Hall and the railway are no more.
