Talyllyn Railway's prestigious loco on display
The next leg of a nationwide tour around steam heritage railways and museums by Talyllyn Railway’s steam locomotive No.3 Sir Haydn has been announced.
From November, it will be on display at the Engine House Museum at Highley Station on the Severn Valley Railway. This is the second time that the locomotive has been a visitor to the Severn Valley Railway after appearing as a guest star at the railway’s ‘Autumn Steam Gala’ in September.
Tour co-ordinator Ellis Jacklin said: “The visit of Sir Haydn to the Engine House is the culmination of a fantastic year for this little loco. It has popped up in various surprising places over the year and brought back memories of previous happy visits to Talyllyn Railway to those that have seen it across the UK.”
This year, Sir Haydn has visited the Great Central Railway at both its Loughborough and Nottingham sites, as well as the Tyseley Open Days in Birmingham. From there the loco visited the Midland Railway, Butterley followed by the Severn Valley Railway and West Somerset Railway.
