Mull Rail­way’s diesel en­gines find home in Stafford­shire

The Oban Times - - News -

It is two years since the Mull Rail­way was lifted from its tracks be­tween Craignure and Torosay Cas­tle and put in stor­age. Diesel en­gines Glen Aul­dyn (with The Tober­mory Still­man name­plate on the front), Frances and Vic­to­ria – which took many chil­dren and adults on the spec­tac­u­lar is­land jour­ney – were even­tu­ally moved to the Leek and Rud­yard Rail­way by bene­fac­tor Si­mon Clarke. Mr Clark up­dated read­ers this week say­ing: ‘ The steam en­gine Vic­to­ria is away for its 10-year over­haul. We have moved some of the old car­riages into our work­shop to start the over­haul, but they are not cur­rently in ser­vice. Both diesels, Vic­to­ria and Glen Aul­dyn, are in reg­u­lar use and we have used some of the old Mull track and points, but not yet started the ex­ten­sion which is where most of it will be used.’
