"Bonnie Dundee" engine
"Bonnie Dundee" engine
A non-operational engine on the La'al Ratty railway, on display between the two platforms. It/she was built in 1900 in Stoke-on-Trent, originally to work in Dundee gasworks. It operated there until the late 1950s, at which point it was pensioned off and due to be scrapped. A railway benefactor from Arbroath put a stop to that, restored the engine, and donated it to the Ravenglass railway, where it's now a permanent part of the museum exhibits.
