Nightingale And Seacole Locomotive
This locomotive was built by Hudswell Clarke in 1916 to work at the Ministry of Munitions at Gretna Green where it was given the name Mitchell (Mitchell was the Corporation’s engineer). Surprisingly the locomotive survived intact under the ownership of several people but was never on public display, until now.

In May 2020 it was announced that the locomotive would be renamed Nightingale and Seacole to show support for the front line workers fighting the Coronavirus pandemic. The story of Florence Nightingale is well known but that of Mary Jane Seacole less so. Seacole was a British-Jamaican business woman and nurse who set up the “British Hotel” behind the lines during the Crimean War.
