672 and 80151 are now the oldest and youngest surviving locomotives built at Brighton. They are seen here posed at Horsted Keynes re-enacting the Brighton Railway's well-known publicity photographs of their new Baltic Tank locomotive with Terrier Boxhill in 1914. Half of the Bluebell Railway's currently-operational fleet of locomotives were built at Brighton.
