Mull Railway’s diesel engines find home in Staffordshire

It is two years since the Mull Railway was lifted from its tracks between Craignure and Torosay Castle and put in storage. Diesel engines Glen Auldyn (with The Tobermory Stillman nameplate on the front), Frances and Victoria – which took many children and adults on the spectacular island journey – were eventually moved to the Leek and Rudyard Railway by benefactor Simon Clarke. Mr Clark updated readers this week saying: ‘The steam engine Victoria is away for its 10-year overhaul. We have moved some of the old carriages into our workshop to start the overhaul, but they are not currently in service. Both diesels, Victoria and Glen Auldyn, are in regular use and we have used some of the old Mull track and points, but not yet started the extension which is where most of it will be used.’
