Steam loco Caledonia's boiler has left the steam sheds! It's on its way to be repaired at Severn Valley Railway

This unique 0-6-0T locomotive dates from 1885 and is the only engine on the line to have been built by Dübs and Company, of Glasgow; purchased to tackle the steep gradients of the Foxdale Railway


Not to be confused with Andrew Barclay 1995 'Caledonia' - The boiler belonging to Hollycombe Working Steam Museum arrived on 20 June 2012. It is from a 2ft gauge Andrew Barclay 0-4-0 Well Tank locomotive, built in 1931.

@SVREngineeringsteam has images of a swop with ex IOMR 13 which has returned
