Ajax and Invincible in 2011

Just a quick post tonight; showing a few photographs taken on the Isle of Wight Steam Railway last November.  No locomotives were in steam, but I had the opportunity to have a good look at two of the railway’s locomotives; Ajax and Invincible.

Invincible is a Hawthorn Leslie 0-4-0 saddle tank locomotive built for the Woolwich Arsenal in 1915 and is preserved in their maroon livery.

Ajax is a Barclay 0-6-0 side tank engine built for the Sulphide Corporation (London) in 1918.

Tomorrow I shall continue from yesterday’s blog post and look at Havenstreet in detail.  Watch this space!
