Harlaxton was built by Andrew Barclay in 1941 for Stewart & Lloyds, Corby. The locomotive carried the name Harlaxton after one of Stewart & Lloyds quarries. Harlaxton was initially preserved at the North Norfolk Railway, before moving to the Caledonian Railway at Brechin. After a period in operation in the early 2000s, the loco returned to operation in 2016 and operates as Thomas the Tank Engine.
