River Mite is a steam engine working on the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway.

Using the former Poultney tender chassis fitted to River Esk from 1928, the new Preservation Society designed a 2-8-2 locomotive, which was built by Clarksons of York in 1966. After overhauls in 1978 and 2006/7, she celebrated her fortieth year at Ravenglass in 2007.

Mike is based on her.


River Mite appeared in a 1979 Annual about the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway. She also appeared in a Mr. Perkins segment.
