Sharpthorn

This industrial saddle tank is remarkable in that she was used in the original construction of the line over a century ago!  A very long-term restoration project, she is currently in a prominent position outside the Bessemer Arms, adjacent to the road up to Sheffield Park station.

At Horsted Keynes, 19th April 1990.
