Love Your Railway 2022: History Week

This week to celebrate #History week as part of the #LoveYourRailway campaign we have ‘Premier’, the first locomotive to be used at Sittingbourne Paper Mill back in 1905.

After a career in paper making, Premier transferred across to what became the Sittingbourne & Kemsley Light Railway and has recently returned to service after a 28-year absence and a £120,000 overhaul. The loco has also been backdated to as close to as-built condition as possible.

In September, Premier will star at two Gala Weekends – at Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway on 2nd-4th and our own on 24th & 25th.
