Our Locomotives

We operate with steam and diesel locomotives at the Doon Valley Railway.  Our mainstay of passenger operations is NCB No.10 and this is supported by our two operational diesel locos, Powfoot No.1 and the Sentinel.


We also have our unique operational Fireless steam locomotive, which we demonstrate several times throughout the year.
