Steam Trains On The Line
took place on the Mumbles Railway between 1878 and 1885 and also between
1892 and 1896.
The picture on the left shows a Mumbles Train being pulled by a "Dickson Steam Locomotive".
It could stop within its own length when travelling at the Government's speed limit of 8 mph (miles per hour).
These are pictures of steam locomotives that pulled the Mumbles Train. The photograph on the left shows a steam locomotive that was used on the Mumbles Railway in 1881. The locomotive on the right was used on the line between 1892 and 1929.
What are the differences between these locomotives?
