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 'Fenchurch' by the LB&SCR, who named their small tank engines after places served by their system. The photo shows the engine far from it home in southern England, at the 1975 exhibition at Shildon, Co Durham, to mark the 150th anniversary of the Stockton and Darlington Railway. It must have been the cleanest engine there (and they were all very clean!) and even the coal was whitewashed on the day of the cavalcade!
