Rocket Steam Locomotive


Built in 1926 and Fully Refurbished

Our steam locomotive “Rocket” is a wonderful fully refurbished 0-4-0ST steam locomotive originally built by Peckett and Sons Ltd of Bristol in 1926. “Rocket” has recently been overhauled and has come back into public service for our 2014 season.
