Museum

The Crampton is a type of steam locomotive designed by Thomas Russel Crampton and built by various companies from 1846 until 1862. Crampton locomotives were used by some British railways and speeds of up to 120 km/h (74,6 mph) were achieved on the LNWR (London and North Western Railway). They were also very popular in France, Southern Germany and the US.

Crampton locomotives feature a low boiler and large driving wheels. The finesse of the Crampton design was that the single driving axle was placed behind the firebox, so that the driving wheels could be very large. This helped to give this design a low centre of gravity, so that it did not require a very broad-gauge track to travel safely at high speeds.

Variants

Blazer is the Gem Gems version, differentiated by a fire pattern livery.

Trefoil is the St. Patrick's Day version.
