This contemporary drawing, reproduced in The Iron Road, shows the Caledonian, a 0-4-0 locomotive built for the Liverpool and Manchester Railway in 1832 by Galloway, Bowman and Glasgow of Manchester’s Caledonian Foundry. Here it pulls a first-class coach. Numbered 28, it showed a tendency to derail, and on 28th February 1835, it was involved in a fatal collision with the Star, another locomotive. It was then used as a ballast engine by the London and Birmingham Railway. It should not be confused with a London, Midland and Scottish Railway Royal Scot Class 4-6-0 locomotive of the same name, later renamed The North Staffordshire Regiment
