Biography

The Railway Series

Neil was built at Neilson and Company's Hyde Park Works in Glasgow, Scotland around 1856, for the Sodor and Mainland Railway and was a typical contractors' engine of the period. In 1865, he helped to ferry Skarloey from the port of Kirk Ronan to his home at the Skarloey Railway terminus of Crovan's Gate. He warned Skarloey about trucks and the two became friends.

Very little is known about Neil due to the S&M's casual attitude to record keeping, but he and his brothers Clive and Matthew were all scrapped by 1901 which also brought services to an end.
