Caledonian Railway 0-4-4T No. 55189

Built by the Caledonian Railway at St Rollox Works, Glasgow, in 1907, No.419 was designed for branch line work, fast suburban runs, and banking duties. Saved by the Scottish Railway Preservation Society in 1964, the locomotive returned to steam in 1971. Today, it can be seen operating at the Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway. For the 2023 season, the locomotive was repainted into its BR Black livery.
