Campaign launched to keep loco 'Stamford' at railway museum in Rutland

A campaign has been launched to make a 94-year-old steam locomotive a permanent resident of Rutland.

Called ‘Stamford’, the loco spent all of its working life at Pilton ironstone quarries and is one of only a handful of quarry steam locomotives that worked in the Rutland quarries to survive.

Its current owners, the volunteer-run Bluebell Railway in Sussex, has agreed to sell ‘Stamford’ to Rocks by Rail near Cottesmore, originally known as Rutland Railway Museum.
