Fact file of the locomotives and rolling stock of the NWDMR
The railway has a vast fleet of locomotives of all types and sizes, everyone of them has a story to tell, which ones have you rode behind?
Stafford 0-4-0st 'R.J Goulding'
R.J Goulding’ is a Stafford class 0-4-0st steam locomotive built by Station Road Steam in Lincolnshire in 2013 for her previous owner the late 'Richard Goulding', of whom the locomotive is now named after.
The loco ran a few times on a temporary track at Lodge Farm Park in Romford during the early days of the Havering Miniature Railway Club.
In 2017 the Epping Ongar Miniature Railway Group (EOMRG) purchased the loco for use on their portable track based at the Epping Ongar Heritage Line. The EOMRG was absorbed into the NWDMR when Blue Diamond offered the group the current site at the Harlow Garden Centre. 'R.J Goulding' returned to Lodge Farm Park for a brief visit, attending their Grand Opening as a visiting locomotive before finally arriving at her new home at the NWDMR in August 2019.
In 2020 she underwent a cosmetic overhaul and returned to steam in May 2021!

Jenko, is a battery electric 'Comet class' locomotive, privately owned by Jenkins locomotives. Jenko came to us from the Lodge Farm Park Railway in Romford, and has played a big part in both hauling passengers and hauling engineering trains building the railway. It's seen on most running days, as one of our main locos. Jenko was built in 2014 by Phoenix Locomotives of Southport. Jenko was purchased brand new also by the late Richard Goulding, so it seems fitting that both of his locomotives now reside at the NWDMR.
‘Bigfoot’, is an American switcher style battery locomotive, that came to us from the Epping Ongar Miniature Railway Group. The locomotive was built in 2018, it was operated by the EOMRG on their portable track at various events around Essex before arriving at the NWMDR in December 2019.
The loco has seen little use since its arrival and was put up for sale in 2023. Please contact us for details.

We often host a variety of visiting locomotives throughout the year, particularly at gala events, keep an eye out for special event days on our Facebook feed. We welcome visitors, so please contact us and we can advise you of the requirements.
We have a fleet of 4 Blue sit in coaches, built by CMD Engineering. Previously ran on the Fenn Bell Miniature Railway & The Barnards Miniature Railway.
Owned by Jenkins locomotives two car set of coaches, that used to run on the ex Barleylands Miniature Railway & Barnards & Havering Miniature Railways , are now resident on the NWDMR. These are about 30 years old and offer a nice bit of heritage. Although a fair squeeze to get in, which makes it fun!
