2.5 years of negotiation and hard work finally paid off when the 2nd locomotive for the YWR was finally delivered on the 24 June 2021

Patricia, a 424 series 0-6-0 Fowler shunter will make a fine addition to the growing fleet at the YWR and now that Patricia is on site, the hard work of a mechanical restoration can begin.

The first job will be to make Patricia watertight and replace all the broken windows and frames. Once complete then we can move on to the heavy mechanical work to get the engine and gearbox checked over and ready for service.

Having Patricia will give the YWR options on which locomotive to run and eventually allow “top and tail” running with the brake van. Its a further major step forward for us.

To allow the restoration to start we need your help to “Fund the Fowler” by raising the £6000 needed to complete the mechanical restoration.
