Victory was built by Andrew Barclay to a standard 12in class pattern.
It spent all of its working life based at the Royal Navy Dockyard at Chatham. It was withdrawn from service in 1969.
‘Victory’ is an ex-dockyard locomotive built in 1945; an Andrew Barclay build 0-4-0ST built to the standard 12” class pattern. ‘Victory’ was given the works number ‘2199’ and then delivered to the Royal Navy Dockyard at Chatham where it worked until it was withdrawn in 1969.
It was restored and overhauled by father and son team Richard and Tony Goulding, and fittingly visited Chatham as part of their festival of Steam and Transport.
The locomotive is based on the Whitwell & Reepham Railway.
