The North Borneo Railway features a British Vulcan steam locomotive, designed and built by the Vulcan Foundry in Newton-le-Willows, England in 1954 as part of the last order before the factory converted to diesel and electric locomotive construction. The Vulcan 6-015, A2-6-2 carrying a green livery with polished boiler bands and red edging to the running plate and tender frame, was de- commissioned for general use in the early 1970’s by the Sabah State Railway Department. It is one of the only few functional wood-burners left in the world.

It was proudly re-launched on 22nd January 2000, in honour of Kota Kinabalu, Sabah’s capital, achieving City-Status.
