Work starts in North Lincolnshire on new £5m steam locomotive

Work to build a new £5m steam locomotive has started at a steelworks in Scunthorpe.

The engine, named the Prince of Wales, is based on a London and North Eastern Railway P2 design which was built at Doncaster in the 1930s.

The company behind the project said it would take seven years to build the engine and it hoped to raise the money by public donations.
