Steam Locos For Opening Weekend

We are very pleased to say that two steam locomotives will be visiting for the opening weekend. All trains will be hauled top and tailed by 0-4-0 Peckett "Teddy" and 0-4-0 Barclay "Colin McAndrew".

0-4-0 Peckett "Teddy"
"Teddy" is named after the rev Teddy Boston who setup the Cadeby Light Railway in the grounds of the Cadeby village rectory. The loco was based there from 1982 until 2006. It is wonderful to see the loco back in Leicestershire again.

0-4-0 Barclay "Colin McAndrew"
"Colin McAndrew" was built in 1911 and was a former railway contractors locomotive.

Both locomotives are ideal for the Mountsorrel Railway with its tight curves and steep gradients and we are very grateful to the owners of both locomotives for allowing them to come and be part of the historic opening!
