    I have added a new collection featuring The London and South Western Railway (LSWR) 0298 Class or Beattie Well Tank

    The London and South Western Railway (LSWR) 0298 Class or Beattie Well Tank is a class of Britishsteam locomotive. They are 2-4-0WTwell tanks, originally built between 1863 and 1875 for use on passenger services in the suburbs of London, but later used on rural services in South West England. Out of a total production of 85, two locomotives have been preserved in an operational condition

    Thanks Neil,

    I presume 30585 & 30587 ran light to London before the tour (and thence preservation)? Does anyone have any pictures of this LE movement? And if there was one at Axminster that would be the cherry on the top of the icing!
