Is this a Yorkshire Terrier?

I've just added a photo of the loco at Levisham on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway on October 4th, 2003, when it was operating a 2 coach shuttle service between Pickering and Levisham. Rear coach is the Thompson CL, ex Scottish Region.

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 is was originally named 'Knowle' by the LB&SCR, which named these locos after places on their system. Today, it is one of the locos in its final livery of British Railways lined black, and running under its BR number. In October 2003 it visited the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, which is a first for the class, and very smart it looked on a two coach shuttle between Pickering and Levisham. This was a rare sight indeed, but it looked quite at home in the country station of Levisham, which is restored to 1912 appearance.
