Smallbrook Junction

02 class 0-4-4T no, 24 'Calbourne' at Smallbrook Junction with a UK Railtours' charter to Wootton on the Isle of Wight Steam Railway on 20th September 2014 (the railway was specially opened on this day for UK Railtours visitors). This loco was the first to be acquired by the Wight Locomotive Society (the genesis of today's heritage line) in 1967 and was designed by William Adams and constructed at the LSWR's Nine Elm Works, entering service in 1891. It was shipped to the Isle of Wight on 26th April 1925 and worked on the Ryde to Cowes line until this sadly closed in 1966. The loco was restored to its 1930s livery in the 1990s and in 2002 a major overhaul became necessary which took 8 years to complete.
