A new build replica of an original condition England Engine, to carry the name Mountaineer is currently under construction. The locomotive will be built by the 1863 Mountaineer Locomotive Ltd, which invites participation from donors (see the website link below)

The project was announced in September 2019 and was officially launched at the Warley Show in November. The build is expected to take around three years and cost £250,000.[1] By the start of November the first boiler components had been delivered from Israel Newton to North Bay Railway Engineering Services where the locomotive is being assembled.
