As mentioned on the previous page, 'Dunrobin; was sold to Harold Foster, who had the loco and ducal carriage transported to Canada,. Below are photographs from their time at Fort Steele Heritage Town.

After the loco's repatriation it was stripped down for inspection and much needed maintenance. This can be seen in the photos below.

An article by Paul Jarman. the transport curator at the Beamish Museum, can be read HERE. This describes 'Dunrobin's history in Scotland, Kent through to its time in Canada and describes the work now being carried out by the Beamish Museum to prepare the locomotive, once more, for steam.
