The Small England engines were the first 4 steam locomotives of the Ffestiniog Railway in North Wales. They were build by George England & Co in South London in 1863, followed by two ‘large Englands’ in 1867. They were originally built as 0-4-0 side tank locos and modified gradually over the years into their final and most iconic form with saddle tank, enclosed cab and a tender for coal, as depicted by our model. 4 of the 6 England engines survive and three of those are still in service, on the Ffestiniog Railway.
