GARIBALDI

 

Built by Murray & Company for Barra Island in 1875.

Murray was a small engineer in Clydeside and GARIBALDI was one of only two steam locomotives built.
The engine was never delivered to Barra and was instead acquired by Isacc Watt Boulton of Boultons’ Sidings fame. GARIBALDI was hired by a number of contractors before being sold to Sir Rose in 1890.
