Locomotion No.1 Limited Edition Badges or Brooches


These lovely little badges or brooches feature George Stephenson’s Locomotion No.1. You can’t find these anywhere else as each one is a hand tinted print taken from original archival material and made just for us in very limited numbers. Each badge is 2.5cm in diameter with a pin fastening on the back. The badges are available with four different background tints – blue, sepia/parchment, pink or yellow.

These little works of art are suitable for anyone who loves a steam train, or wants to celebrate our railway heritage, as long as you would trust them with a pin (so maybe not very young children or voodoo practitioners). Great little stocking fillers or Father’s Day/Mother’s Day presents.


These little hand tinted brooches or badges have been lovingly made by R. Stevenson. No, not THAT R. Stevenson, the world famous lighthouse engineer who also had a hand in the S&DR, but Rosalyn Stevenson.

Rosalyn is an artist and graphics designer who studied at Art College and then Salford University. She worked in television in Manchester and London and then lectured in Art and Design in London. She has left the capital now (so that she can have a dog) and is now creating distinctive and affordable art where each piece has an element that is recycled or made using found materials. Rosalyn based the designs of these badges on original 19th century engravings which we provided which she then hand tinted.
