Fair Maid of Foyers

Built by Andrew Barclay in 1899.

3′ Gauge 0-4-0T industrial engine. This locomotive was generally in poor condition but was fitted with a new boiler shortly before being withdrawn from service. The engine has just completed a major overhaul which included new axles, slide bars, air brakes and every pin and bush replaced! The locomotive will be stored internally on a standard gauge wagon until its future in Ireland or elsewhere is confirmed. It was planned to go to the Fintown Railway but the infrastructure to permit a steam locomotive to operate at this site is not yet in place.
