List of Talyllyn Railway rolling stock

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of past and present rolling stock used on the Talyllyn Railway (Welsh: Rheilffordd Talyllyn), a 2 ft 3 in (686 mm) narrow gauge preserved railway line running for 7.25 miles (11.67 km)[1] from Tywyn on the Mid-Wales coast to Nant Gwernol near the village of Abergynolwyn. The line was opened in 1866 to carry slate from the quarries at Bryn Eglwys to Tywyn, and was the first narrow gauge railway in Britain authorised by Act of Parliament to carry passengers using steam haulage.[2][3] Despite severe under-investment,[4] the line remained open, and in 1951 it became the first railway in the world to be preserved as a heritage railway by volunteers.[5][6]

When first opened, the railway owned two steam locomotives, Talyllyn and Dolgoch, and five carriages, including one brake van. There were no additions to the rolling stock until the line was taken over in 1951.[note 1] Two ex-Corris Railway locomotives were then purchased from British Railways, and subsequent additions have brought the total up to six steam locomotives, five diesels and 23 carriages.

Locomotives[edit]

The railway has six steam locomotives for passenger trains and five diesel locomotives that usually haul only works trains. It is unusual for all steam locomotives to be operable at one time, as there is usually at least one locomotive undergoing overhaul.[8]

Steam locomotives[edit]

& Co.
, Whitehaven[9]
42[9] 1864[9] In service [10]
One of two original locomotives, it was built as an 0-4-0 ST without a cab. By 1866, trailing wheels had been added to improve stability, and it had a cab installed at the same time.[9] It was named after the railway.
2 Dolgoch Dolgoch at Tywyn Wharf 0-4-0 WT[11] Fletcher, Jennings
& Co., Whitehaven[11]
63[11] 1866[11] In service.
The second original locomotive. Like Talyllyn, it was built without a cab, though one was subsequently added. It was named after the intermediate station and local waterfalls, though after the Boer War, it carried the name Pretoria for several years. In 2011 it received a new boiler, and returned to steam in time for the 60th anniversary celebrations of the preservation society on 14 May.
3 Sir Haydn Sir Haydn at Abergynolywn 0-4-2 ST[12] Hughes,

An ex-Corris Railway locomotive, purchased in 1951 and subsequently named after Sir Henry Haydn Jones, owner of the railway prior to preservation. Following the expiry of its 10 year boiler ticket in early 2012 the loco was stored out of use at the Corris Railway until April 2013 when it commenced a tour of various railway sites in England to help raise funds for its overhaul. It is now on display at The Engine House at the Severn Valley Railway until work can commence on the overhaul.
4 Edward Thomas Edward Thomas at Abergynolwyn 0-4-2 ST[13] Kerr Stuart,
Stoke-on-Trent[13]

This lightweight locomotive was built by member David Curwen using a Model T Ford engine and transmission from L.T.C Rolt's narrowboat and the wheels from a Talyllyn Railway slate wagon. It worked the Fridays-only winter passenger service until 1953,[35][36] when it was taken out of use with a failed gearbox. It was dismantled in 1954,[33] and converted to flat wagon No. 19 (see below).[37] It is proposed to rebuild it as a memorial to David Curwen, using a replacement engine and bodywork.[35]
7 "Charley's Ant" 4-2-0 Talyllyn Railway 1954 c.1958
A Mercury tractor that had been adapted to push standard gauge rolling stock by the addition of a buffer beam. It was further adapted in 1954 for use on the Talyllyn, and later converted to run on paraffin instead of petrol.[38] It was little used after 1958 and later scrapped. It was nicknamed after Charles Uren, the railway's chief engineer.[23]

The locomotive was named after the Bryn Eglwys slate quarries. The loco was sold to the North Gloucestershire Railway,[41] and left the railway in August 2014 when the first Baguley loco entered service.

Visiting locomotives[edit]

Because of the unusual gauge, there have only been two visiting locomotives to date. These are Motor Rail Simplex diesel No. 5 Alan Meaden and Winson Engineering and Drayton Designs No. 7 Tattoo class design[42] similar to the Talyllyn's No. 4. Both these are locomotives from the Corris Railway.

Carriages[edit]

The Talyllyn railway has a total of 23 carriages. The first five are the original carriages built for the railway, though they were not provided with numbers until preservation in 1951. After that time, the remaining carriages were built by the railway or acquired from elsewhere.[45] With the exception of ex-Corris carriage No. 17, all the bogie coaches were built for the railway after preservation; the smaller four wheeled coaches are generally older.

All the stock is third class only, unless otherwise stated. Where two figures are given for the number of seats, the larger figure is the maximum number of passengers than can be carried in a heavily loaded train.

Goods wagons[edit]

The Talyllyn Railway was primarily constructed for conveying slate. Prior to the beginning of the 20th century, the railway owned over 115 wagons,[73] mainly slate wagons, but also a number of other general and special purpose goods wagons. Some of these survived into the preservation era, and since then a large number of additional wagons have been purchased and built. The following table lists the main types of wagon currently in use:

Narrow Gauge Railway Museum rolling stock[edit]

The Narrow Gauge Railway Museum is a purpose-built museum dedicated to narrow gauge railways situated on the Tywyn Wharf station. It owns several wagons formerly in use on the railway (listed above), as well as rolling stock and other artefacts from other narrow gauge railways around the world. The wagons are still used occasionally on the Talyllyn.

Liveries[edit]

The standard livery for locomotives on the Talyllyn is bronze deep green,[83] lined in black and yellow, although since the 1980s there has been a policy of varying some of the liveries for a period of time. It is usual to have one steam engine painted in the guise of one of its fictional counterparts from the Skarloey Railway and wearing a face on the smokebox. This is usually No. 3 or No. 4, as the red livery closely resembles the colour carried by these locomotives on the Corris Railway, however, number 6 was painted to look like Duncan on one occasion.

The liveries carried by the steam locomotives as of 2013 are as follows:-

  • No. 1: Black with red and white lining in LNWR style.[84]
  • No. 2: Lined LMS crimson livery.[85]
  • No. 3: Corris Red.[12]
  • No. 4: Standard Talyllyn green with standard lining.[13]
  • No. 6: Gloss red with black Borders.[16]
  • No. 7: Standard Talyllyn green with non standard lining.[19]

The vintage rolling stock and the carriages built for the line after preservation are cherry red, lined with deep bronze green. Additionally, the railway has preserved rolling stock from other railways. These retain their original liveries.

The Corris coach (Talyllyn No. 17) and brake van (Talyllyn No. 6) are brown lined with gold leaf and the two Glyn Valley Tramway coaches (Talyllyn Nos. 14 and 15) are green lined with white.[83]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ There is evidence that during the 1910s, Henry Haydn Jones, the owner of the railway at the time, requested estimates for a new locomotive for the railway.[7] However, no purchase was made.
  2. ^ a b c d e f g h  
    • DH = Diesel-Hydraulic - Diesel locomotive with hydraulic transmission (incorporating a torque converter);
    • DM = Diesel-Mechanical - Diesel locomotive with mechanical transmission
    • PM = Petrol-Mechanical -Petrol locomotive with mechanical transmission.
  3. ^ The third loco, formerly T 0009 00 NZ 35 (BD 3781), will not operate on the railway, but is being used for spares.
  4. ^ Names in inverted commas refer to unofficial nick-names, not formally applied.
  5. ^ The Corris Railway used the alternative spelling of waggon for its rolling stock, and this has been applied here.[82]
