The Polly locomotive was originally designed and manufactured by JGS Clarke (pictured right) in 1987. In 1999 Andy Clarke (pictured left) bought the Polly range of locomotives with the intention of resurrecting this beautiful range. A toolmaker by training, Andy has realised an ambition of combining his hobby with his work.

Andy is determined to establish Polly Engineering as a company with a reputation for good quality and service.
