This BR standard tank had undergone many years of restoration in East Anglia before being relocated to the Bluebell for completion of the work.  She was returned to steam in Autumn 2001 and is in frequent use, being an ideal size for the railway.   This engine would have regularly worked on the Bluebell Railway in BR days.
