    Photos of 10 steam locos preserved in the Ulster Transport Museum at Cultra, Co Down, Northern Ireland are now online.

    The locos include the largest ever to run in Ireland (Great Southern Railways 4-6-0 No 800 Maedb). It looks very much like a rebuilt Royal Scot - but was built three years before the Scots began to be rebuilt. And there is a Fowler 2P 4-4-0.

    As well as broad gauge (5ft 3in) locos there are narrow gauge (3ft) and industrials.

    Thanks Andrew. How well the locos are presented at Cultra. You've whet my appetite now, so may call in later this summer :)
