One of several LB&SCR 'Terriers'preserved, all of them over 100 years old. Stroudley's classic Victorian tank engine, they look tiny as the coaches tower over them, but they are powerful for their size. This one was named 'Martello' by the LB&SCR. The photo shows the engine in the LB&SCR's umber livery which was introduced by Marsh. However, the locos lost their names at this point. Other liveries can be seen on the other preserved locos of the class. On locos of such longevity, there is plenty of choice. Whatever their colour, they remain a delightful feature of UK preservation
