Saturday 22nd September – another open day at the Statfold Barn Railway. And what a day! No fewer than eight narrow gauge steam locomotives in action – wonderful! In no particular order, there were the two ex-Java O&Ks – Pakis Baru nos. 1 and 5 (the Mallet), the repatriated Hunslet “Trangkil no. 4”, Alan Civil’s “Pearl 2”, “Isabel” from Amerton, the Harrogate gas works Peckett, new build Hunslet “Jack Lane”, and on the garden railway “Emmet”. We mustn’t forget a bevy of visiting traction engines, and Cockerill “Yvonne” in steam (but not moving very much!) on the standard gauge.
