- Origins of the Name "Majestic"
Majestic was named after the steam launch she was carried by when being transported. Majestic is slightly special compared to most showmans engines due to extra brass work and the boiler bands not being flat, this is because she was displayed at the Royal Show as an example of Burrell's work
