History

Used at the ball clay works near Peters Marland in North Devon it was placed in store in 1964 after the radiator was damaged by frost. After many years it and the rest of the locomotives at this site were sold into preservation.

Retaining its Fowler engine this has been given a heavy repair with new liners being made in the BWR workshops. It is now approaching the time when the starter button will be pressed for the first time in many years.
