Built by N.A. Dadd & Son (Taplow) for the proposed Dorney Tramway Company in 1882.
However, the company ran into financial difficulties early on and the railway never started, PRINCESS being returned to Dadd having never turned a wheel at Dorney. It was moved to Candlebridge in 1885.
Unusual in design, PRINCESS shows Dadds’ flair for beauty, with curves & lines to suit.
