'Catch Me Who Can'
This is a recent working replica of Trevithick's last locomotive, built in 1808. It is built to modern standards, and does not attempt to replicate the constructional details of the day. In fact there are no original drawings to serve as a guide, beyond simple contemporary sketches. Details of surviving Trevithick engines also provided guidance. See here for more information about the project.
Located at Bridgnorth Station, Severn Valley Railway.
