The latest loco to touch down on FMR Steel is the “Thumper”.  This is a classically styled minimal loco, running a 2HP Petrol Paraffin Lister Engine.  The Thumper has now been regauged from 10 1/4 to 9″ after leaving its previous home on the Birchley Miniature Railway in Biddenden.

It is intended that the Thumper will be seen as a relief loco to help provide additional traction during the busier periods of the day.
