What can I see at the West Shed? - Two powerful 1930s steam locomotives: 6233 ‘Duchess of Sutherland’ and 6203 ‘Princess Margaret Rose’. - Special Saloon ‘45000’ built in 1920; widely used by Royalty and dignitaries including Winston Churchill during the Second World War. - No.1 Dynamometer Car testing vehicle. - Ex-Butlin’s miniature locomotives. • British Railways Standard Tank engines. - Find out more through films and hands-on activities. - Join us in the school holidays for creative craft activities. Our locomotive workshop is used for restoration and maintenance work on vehicles in our collection, but is also hired out for use by modern railway companies to carry out work - continuing the link with Derbyshire's engineering heritage. We also operate steam train trips all over the UK - see the 'PMR Tours' section of our website for details.
