Fowler 0-4-0DM 21999/1937 "Fluff"
Fluff was the Lakeside Railway Society's first locomotive - bought by the Society to haul works trains on what was to become the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway from the Steelworks in Barrow-in-Furness. In due course the Furness Railway Trust was established and took over all the Society's assets, including the little shunter.
The locomotive spent three years on display outside Vintage Vehicles Shildon - the "other" museum in Shildon, County Durham, next door to the NRM's Locomotion, but has now moved to the Trust's home base, the Ribble Steam Railway in Preston.
