A long train coming

SteamRanger’s Oliver Lukins is thrilled that the organisation’s Rx224 steam locomotive will be recommissioned this weekend. The group has spent 20-odd years rebuilding the engine after a mechanical issue rendered it inoperable several decades ago.

A veteran steam engine will return to the rails this weekend following a 20-year restoration project.
On Sunday SteamRanger’s Rx224 locomotive will be formally recommissioned to run for the first time since the early 1990s.
