Upnor Castle is a medium sized diesel locomotive in use on the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways. It was used up to early 1962 at the Royal Navy's Lodge Hill and Upnor (Chattenden and Upnor) Railway in Kent. It arrived on the FR from the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway in 1968 and was regauged at Boston Lodge.

It is seen here during a September 1968 FRS Bristol Area Group Working Party on the Mineral Line at Minffordd by the weighbridge.
