Stradbally’s Bord na Móna Barclay named Róisín

THE 3ft-gauge Irish Steam Preservation Society will officially name its 1949-built Andrew Barclay 0-4-0WT No. 2 Róisín, the first time in its history the locomotive has carried a name. 

The naming ceremony for the former Bord na Móna loco (W/No. 2264) took place at the Stradbally Woodland Railway on May 4, almost 70 years to the day since its delivery from Scotland in 1949.  The name was chosen following a vote among the railway’s volunteers, and means rose in Irish Gaelic.
