Brown Bear’s Voice


As the Brown Bear Appeal enters its 4th year, work on her construction and sourcing parts continues.

An important component for the locomotive is her whistle, which was always going to be difficult to source to ensure it would match Polar Bear’s original that is clearly visible in so many early photographs.

Following some investigation work via online sites and through a few railway contacts to find an appropriate whistle, we’ve purchased Brown Bear’s “voice” seen here which will stand proudly mounted on the front of the cab once the locomotive is complete.

We still need to raise £50,000 to get her completed and in steam down the glen, if you can assist from only a few pound per month, please check out the Brown Bear Appeal page for the rewards available for your support.

Thank you.
