Old Macdonald’s Farm

In 2011, we were approached by the owners of Old Macdonald’s Farm, a family tourist attraction based near Padstow in Cornwall to replace their miniature train.

The railway had been in place since 1989 and the train in use was showing its age. After discussions with the owners, we selected an appropriate locomotive design that would appeal to the young audience of visitors, but also be practical for daily commercial use.

The locomotive was delivered in April 2012 alongside a replacement carriage, both fitted with air brakes, and has proved very popular with visitors.
