One of the world’s oldest locomotives, Agenoria is a close relative of the first locomotive to run in the USA, the Stourbridge Lion of 1828. The company of Foster, Rastrick built only four locomotives, and three went to the Delaware and Hudson Canal Company. The remaining one was Agenoria, which takes its name from a Roman Goddess. It was supplied to Staffordshire’s Shutt End Colliery where it pulled coal wagons for 35 years.
