Steam locomotive "Douglas" Ex RAF Air Service Constructional Corps No 1
Adapted from Wikipedia:
Narrow gauge 0-4-0 steam
locomotive Douglas spent most of
its working life at RAF Calshot near Southampton. Douglas was later bought
by an engineering company called Abelson's. In the early days of
preservation, the Talyllyn Railway had contacted this and other similar
firms, asking for redundant equipment. Abelson's offered the locomotive
to the Talyllyn, and in return they named it after the donor, Douglas
Abelson. After presentation in 1953 the locomotive Douglas was retuned and
converted from 2ft gauge at Griffin Foundry, Oldbury before being taken
by road to Towyn.
