Outside the Devil^s Porridge museum in Eastriggs are two railway exhibits. The camouflage painted standard gauge 0-6-0 fireless locomotive is very visible from the road [See image 48483] but this narrow gauge wagon on the other side of the building might be overlooked. As the Longtown-Gretna-Eastriggs complex was nine miles long with a fleet of over forty locomotives there must have been hundreds of railway wagons in use there at the height of munitions production.

EE Type 4 no D200 (40122) pilots Black 5 no 44767 George Stephenson near Dornock on 22 March 1986 with a Carlisle - Kilmarnock special. The steam locomotive and stock were gradually making their way north to Fort William for a season of West Highland excursions, while the Type 4 had hauled the train from Carlisle in compliance with the BR ban on steam working under OHL at that time.
