DEE VALLEY RAILWAY

Locomotives

Locomotives on the Dee Valley Railway

There are many steam and diesel locomotives based at the Dee Valley Railway.  Some are being restored, some being repaired and maintained and some are in service.  Because of the nature of these veteran forms of railway motive power the running situation changes frequently.  And, of course, we have visiting locomotives to add to the variety.

Please see these pages for the latest situation on any particular locomotive.

Detailed reports on the condition of locomotives are given in Main Line, the quarterly magazine for members of Friends of the Dee Valley Main Line.
