A small Scot in Wales

An unexpected find on a grey December afternoon – ALEXANDRA, built by Andrew Barclay of Kilmarnock in 1902 (works no 929). It was working at Millom ironworks when the latter closed in the late 1960s, and then spent many years at the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway. More recently, it lived in Gloucestershire – and now resides, after a short spell in Oswestry, near Criggion in Powys. I’d read of its recent moves, but hadn’t given it a thought when we set off earlier in the day. Yes, that’s (appropriately) a highland cow keeping it company…
