NEWLY RESTORED LOCOMOTIVES
On Thursday 20th February the museum proudly unveiled two newly restored locomotives. The restoration project, funded by Museums Galleries Scotland, saw the Scottish Railway Preservation Society’s Lady Victoria Locomotive and the National Mining Museum’s Ayrshire Barclay locomotive conserved, repaired and restored to their appropriate liveries.
The conservation was carried out by a dedicated team of experts and volunteers from SRPS. The project also provided opportunities for both museums’ youth groups to take part in conservation workshops and hands on restoration of the locos.
