MUCH-travelled 0-6-0T Pilgrim (D King 1980) is visiting the 10¼in-gauge Watford Miniature Railway (WMR) for the railway’s 60th anniversary season (RM July, p84).
It arrived on August 6 following boiler work at Denver Light Railway, Birmingham.
Pilgrim was built for the Wells & Walsingham Railway, Norfolk, running there from the line’s opening in 1982 until 1987.
It visited many places after that, including time as part of the Pilgrim Railway, a fully equipped portable railway with its own dedicated transport vehicles.
It was later acquired by current owner Stuart Madgin, and was based on the now-closed Knebworth House Miniature Railway, Hertfordshire.
It will be starring at the WMR’s heritage gala weekend on September 28-29.
