About the engine
When the first railway was built in Sheffield, the Schwabs acquired (1922) a small but disproportionately powerful 0-4-2T from the Jubb engineering company to operate the line, and this engine subsequently moved with the family to Saltwood. The engine ran without name or number, but has become known as "No 1", and was well suited to the limited operation of a private family line with just one 2-seater passenger coach and assorted goods wagons for freight services around the estate.
However, the line was soon to expand, with public operating days becoming the norm. A more powerful engine was required. The solution for Frank and Alex Schwab in 1928 was to scrap their locomotive, and to recycle some parts from the engine into a much larger engineering project (see entry for Trojan).
Where is it now?
No 1 was scrapped in 1928, and no longer exists. Some parts of the engine probably still survive in Trojan. Other parts, including the boiler, appear to have been reused in the construction of Col Tyrell's locomotive Atlanta which ran on railways at New Romney and Folkestone, and is now in the United States.
