    There are three narrow gauge locos at the Museum of Power in Ceredigion, a 2' 6" Wingrove and Rogers battery loco (3805 I think), and two Ruston and Hornby locos, 229633 (2ft) and 210691 (1m). Does anyone know the history of these three?

    No I do not currently volunteer
    I visited with my oldest about 10 years ago - he was 6, we didnt see the locos but were made very welcome

    I would strongly recommend it

    Coo! Seeing your thread title I though for a moment the Essex-based Museum of Power (www.museumofpower.org.uk) had suffered a disaster!

    All three were previously at Scapa Flow Visitor Centre, Orkney, moving to The Museum of Power 10/2017. All three were originally with the military: WR 3805 at RNAD Trecwn, RH 229633 at various locations ending up at Lydd Gun Ranges, 210961 at RNAD Milford Haven.

    How are they displayed at The Museum of Power?
