LNER "Chamois"

Chamois is from the Springbok group of locomotives. She is in fact classified as a B1 class locomotive.

Seen here after gaining a steam worthiness certificate July 2023.

Chamios is a wonderful looking engine but being a 3 1/2inch gauge loco she unfortunately does not have the weight to power ratio to haul a pair of normal public ride on carriage's.

Can be seen here (above) hauling a single ride on carriage.

Being followed by a bodiless class 31 electrically driven loco also being tested today.
