NORTH PEMBROKESHIRE & FISHGUARD RAILWAY - BRIEF HISTORY

[Source: Nick Catford]

Margaret, an 0-6-0 saddle tank was built by Fox, Walker and Co. in November 1878 for the Narberth Road and Maenclochog Railway. Margaret is the third locomotiove purchead by the company in 1878 and was presumably named after Edward Cropper's wife. The locomotive was given GWR number 1378. She was sold onto the Gwendraeth Valley line in 1910 becoming a GWR loco again in 1923 and then sold again to the Kidwelly Tinplate Co. Ltd. in March 1923. She was withdrawn in 1941 and rescued and restored 40 years later. Margaret is currently on display at Scolton Manor Museum near Haverfordwest but is currently in poor condition. Pembrokeshire County Council say the locomotive is included in their long term plans for the development of the site. Sarnau signal box is also preseverd at Scolton Manor. Photos by Roy Lambeth
