These two very low 0-4-0ST steam locomotives were built by W.G. Bagnell for use at Par harbour, which is in Cornwall. There was a very low bridge were the GWR Cornish main line went over the railway and some very tight curves.

Judy and Alfred are now perserved at The Bodmin and Wenford Railway.

  Alfred was built in 1953.  Alfred  was built by W.G. Bagnell for use at Par harbour

Although both locomotives are more or less the same note the rivets on the tank of Judy and the handrails. The locos wheelbase is only 5ft and the driver and fireman sort of sit to drive them.
