The latest enquiry for the Museum was regarding an Avonside Engine Company locomotive, ‘Marchlyn’ 2067/1933.  This loco is now situated at the Lake Winneepesaukah Amusement Park in Chattanooga.  The loco formerly worked at the Penrhyn Quarry in North Wales.

We have sent the information which we were able to find to the Park.

Update June 5th 2011 

The locomotive is now back in the UK, at Statfold Barn near Tamworth

Thanks to Taliesin for the information.
