Peckett 0-4-0ST No. 1756 Hornpipe

Hornpipe was delivered to the Holborough Cement Co. Ltd of Snodland, Kent (later part of APCM Ltd) where it shared work with a variety of locomotives until 1971, when it was replaced by a diesel.

The engine was purchased by a Quainton Railway Society member, arriving at Quainton on 8th August 1972. It was stored for a period before being sold to another member who completed restoration work. The locomotive re-entered service during the 1980 season, working at Quainton for a number of years.

In May 1987 Hornpipe moved to a private site in Berkshire, where it has been maintained in operational condition. In July 2012 Hornpipe visited the Mid Suffolk Railway for a short visit, calling in at Ipswich Docks on static display on route.

Current Location - Fifield, Berkshire (Private Site)
