Bagnall Locomotive

While no pictures exist of the Downham Hall timber railway in operation it is likely that Peter now preserved at the Amberley Narrow Gauge Museum was of a similar type.

His history up until the end of the war was very similar being put to use by the the Canadian Forestry Corps:-

Built in 1918, Peter was originally constructed to 3ft gauge and placed into stock for future sale by the manufacturers. It was purchased by the Ministry of Munitions for War in December of that year and delivered to the Canadian Forestry Corps at Longtown, Cumberland. After the Great War, Peter became redundant and was put up for auction by the Board of Trade in 1920.

The Downham Hall Timber Railway operated three Bagnall locomotives between 1917 and 1922.
