Furness Railway 0-4-0 tender engine No. 20 was built to pull passengers on the Furness railway lines in the southern parts of Cumberland County (now in Cumbria). This old and much venerated locomotive was built in 1863 by Sharp Stewart & Co. at their Atlas Works in Manchester.

The driving cab, as with most early locomotives, was rather open to the weather, so it must have been a challenging loco to drive in the winter!
