Engine HistoryEdit

Extract from a copy of “The Blowing Stone” Summer 1993 by Vale & Downland Museum

Mr Lyons had bought it in about 1980 from Mr Tom Paisley of Cambridgeshire and the engine had needed no restoration being still in very good order.

The first owner had been Hulcke Colliery in Lydney, Gloucestershire. We were shown the registration document dated 1898 and costing 2/6 (about 12½ pence) allowing it to go on the highway as a locomotive. The number plate read “AD 8889”. A previous owner was Austin Izzard of Lower Quinton near Stratford Upon Avon, Warwickshire, who registered the engine in 1916.[1]
