CAVALIER

 

By 1972, Y CARIAD had been returned to steam, but PRINCESS required a greater restoration than was then possible at Boot Lane.
Rose decided he needed a new build steam locomotive that he could rely upon, and after a little research, the Allied Marine & Locomotive Company agreed to tackle the project.
A simple vertical boilered tram engine based on the Stratford trams was delivered to Candlebridge in the spring of 1975.
The locomotive was named YEOMAN and was such a success that Rose arranged for Allied Marine to restore/overhaul PRINCESS.
