Locomotives you might see at Evergreens Miniature Railway

BERTIE - (formerly KLR No. 1)

Bertie was built in around 1997/8 by the very prolific builder Eric Walker.

He had decided to build a 7 1/4" gauge garden railway and the first loco he built was this 0-4-0 'Romulus' design.

His railway was named 'Kirton Light Railway', so his first loco was KLR No. 1.  He went on to build many more loco's.

Although renamed Bertie, it still carries the original 'No. 1'.

Very easy to drive and very popular with both visitors and members of EMR. 

Bertie was a frequent visitor when the club was based at Stickney and now the owner resides in Lincolnshire has become a regular runner on open days at Dawn Bank.

'BOND' - 2007

Built in 2007 and named 'BOND' through having 007 (Author Ian Fleming's James Bond character number) in the loco's number.

It is a freelance build of a diesel shunter, with a petrol hydraulic drive, powered by a Honda engine and in 7 1/4" gauge.

Has a wheel arrangement of 0-6-0.  A heavy and capable loco that has seen a lot of miles.

It was driven at most of the Evergreens open days when the club was stationed at Stickney, but as yet has not been run at the new site 'Dawn Bank'.

'MAUREEN' - (named after the owner's late wife).

A 5" gauge 'Virgin train'.

Powered with a Sinclair C5 motor.

The owner fitted a new drive chain and updated the electrics.

It was stripped down to the wood and parts replaced.

Then repainted by Roger Thompson.

A nice tribute and remembrance to Maureen who people will know from welcoming them at the gate/entrance. She was always happy to help in any way she could but particularly remembered for being 'Santa's' number 1 assistant.
