The Cockerill built vertical boiled tram engine "Lucie" has been sold and has now left the Middleton Railway. But its staying in the UK as it has been sold to two private individuals and has been moved to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway for restoration. Where when restored to full working order it will be used there occasionally or spot hire to other heritage railways around the UK.
