These small 0-6-0 tank engines were built by the LB & SCR, their exceptional power for such a tiny locomotive earned them the name ‘terriers’ from the crews. Light enough to traverse many minor routes and branchlines barred to larger engines the Victorian terriers were still at work long after nationalisation.
Many were purchased by light railway companies, proving ideal locomotives for their lightly-built lines with a significant improvement in power and economy over earlier engines. The Weston Clevedon & Portishead Railway purchased 2 terriers from the Southern during the inter-war period, this is the second locomotive, numbered 4.
