History

No 19 was supplied new to HM Dockyard Devonport. Used on the internal passenger train between North and South Yards it  later saw service as a mobile boiler for the supply of steam to warships under repair. Purchased by Dave Fouracre ( an employee at the yard) it was moved to the Great Western Society depot at Bodmin General in 1969 then to the Cornish Steam Locomotive site at Bugle in 1974.

After many years of use it is now in store pending heavy boiler repairs.
